When is it permissible to pray on public property?


With all the law suits and court findings, it is sometimes difficult to determine the appropriate time to personally pray on public property. So do you think it is ok to Thank the Lord for making the lights all green when traveling through a large city. Or maybe Thanking Jesus for keeping you safe when a drunk driver slams into a government building instead of your auto. Can you describe your permissible times?

    Amen, sister! Satan can kill the body, but he can't kill the soul, after all. No one has the right - and can't do it anyway - to try to force someone to stop thinking or praying in their mind.

    It appears that you have removed the rights of the individual when they are a Council Member, School Official, City Administrator, or other elected official. So, it appears your position is that individuals can be restricted? Is it a double standard?

    We don't have rights, we have temporary privileges. We don't have rights when they can be taken away. Do a search for Japanese Americans 1942.

    Yes, all that is true. But in public, you may provide your Thanksgiving for that which the Lord provided you.

    you are so correct. however, some people wish to limit those places where you can pray. to achieve this, the objectors continually seek government restrictions against others. this discrimination must stop. .

    You missed the context of that passage RE the Pharisees praying loudly on the street corners. The point had nothing to do with their praying publicly, but about their hypocrisy. Praying in public, in & of itself, doesn't equal hypocrisy.

    since you are not sure of the point, then you cannot understand that there should be no "within limits".Free speech is free speech - regardless of public property or not.No one is demanding that anyone pray - but they demand prayer restriction.

    Yes, Thanksgiving is great practice. More Americans should participate in Thanksgiving. However, many are extremely jealous of those that can be thankful for the life and opportunity they have.

    Jesus taught that we should forgive the sins of others.

    James 5:2 "Let him know, that he which converteth the sinner from the error of his way shall save a soul from death, and shall hide a multitude of sins."

    Who shall provide a moral path?

    and no one is stopping you so why the attack on other posts about other groups of people? Victimization when you are in the majority is rather silly.
