I don’t want to get into a big debate here about the value, if any, of prayer.  However, this is the National Day of Prayer, so designated by an act of Congress back in 1952.  President Obama, as required by law, signed a proclamation making it official for 2009.   He did not, however, hold any special event at the White House as had his predecessor George W. Bush.

So, did any readers pray more, longer, harder, with greater clarity or wisdom, or in any other improved fashion today because Congress told you to?  I’m thinking that no one can answer “yes” with a straight face.
