While many believers are celebrating the National Day of Prayer, others are celebrating an event called the National Day of Reason. The groups advancing this celebrations are atheists, agnostics, secularists, humanists and free thinkers.
Some may be annoyed that this group would dare celebrate the National Day of Reason on the same day as the National Day of Prayer. As for me, I think it is a great idea. More power to you humanists, etc., et al. To those celebrating the National Day of Reason, I would say, “come let us reason together.”
You see it is good for us to reason together on the National Day of Reason. I would follow that, with:
For this reason [because again, we are reasoning together] I kneel before the Father, from whom his whole family in heaven and on earth derives its name. I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge —that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.
Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
