Editor, The Herald:

To reduce violence in our public school system what do we need?

Security cameras or prayer? Security guards or devotions? Alarm systems or Bible classes? More computers or Bibles?

Matthew 6:33 says “But seek first the Kingdom of God and all things will be added unto you.”

Who are we worshiping the most, the creature, or the creator?

A person went into a public school and was in there about five minutes before anyone knew the person was there. Where was all of this security?

Public prayer has been out of the public schools for many years. Have anybody noticed it? Security, guards, cameras, alarm systems computers will fail. But prayer never fails.
