When an Arizona school district decided to stop allowing any formal prayer at commencement ceremonies, Pima High School students took matters into their own hands at their graduation. Senior student, Esperanza Gonzalez volunteered to open her school’s ceremony with a prayer, and Calleigh Summers ended the event with a benediction.
Fellow students bowed their heads and prayed with the two, and afterward, broke into cheers. “The world keeps saying, ‘No to God, no to God,’” Esperanza told the Eastern Arizona Courier, according to the Citizen Link report. “So, we said ‘Yes’ to God, because He has helped us throughout our entire high school career.”
The superintendent of Pima Unified School District noted that the decision to disallow formal prayer was made at the advice of legal counsel, but he added, “The fact that the students here at Pima High School felt that they wanted to show their true colours, as it were, by saying a prayer at the beginning and end of their graduation ceremony makes me very proud.”

PRAISE: God these students have shown there ARE ways to defeat the humanist PC agenda when Christians present a unified front. Pray that many Christians may be emboldened to find ways of standing publicly for their faith.
