BREAK THE LAW!

 
"Daniel, the Jewish exile, has paid no attention to you, O king, or to the decree you issued; three times a day he offers his prayer." —Daniel 6:14
 

Three times a day, Daniel broke the law prohibiting praying to the true God. Wouldn't it be wonderful if we were repeatedly breaking the laws prohibiting prayer? There's an unwritten law that you don't pray openly on most jobs. Break the law. Many married couples have a strict law that each one should keep their faith and prayers private. Break the law. In our secular humanistic "culture of death," it is not politically correct to pray anywhere other than at church and possibly at home. Break the law. Pray at restaurants, stores, ball games, schools, etc. The Lord commanded us to pray always (Lk 18:1; 1 Thes 5:17). That implies that we pray everywhere we go and in any circumstance the Lord puts us.

I'm not encouraging you to impose your faith on others; rather, simply be open about your love for Jesus. If there was a law forbidding you to communicate openly with someone you love, would you break that law? Love Jesus openly, publicly, boldly, deeply, enthusiastically, and totally. Break any laws contrary to Christ's law of love.

 
Prayer: Father, I obey You rather than man (Acts 5:29).
Promise: "After that, men will see the Son of Man coming on a cloud with great power and glory. When these things begin to happen, stand erect and hold your heads high, for your deliverance is near at hand." —Lk 21:27-28
Praise: Robert prays at his work, on his way to and from work, and before the abortion center when not at work.

Nihil obstat: Reverend Robert L. Hagedorn, March 22, 1997
Imprimatur: †Most Reverend Carl K. Moeddel, Vicar General and Auxiliary Bishop of the Archdiocese of Cincinnati, March 26, 1997
 
The Nihil obstat and Imprimatur are a declaration that a book or pamphlet is considered to be free from doctrinal or moral error. It is not implied that those who have granted the Nihil obstat and Imprimatur agree with the contents, opinions, or statements expressed.
