Research paper number 3

Ever since I can remember, I have been able to openly pray. You have the opportunity to pray whenever and wherever you go. I pray at home, I pray in church, I pray when I go to sleep at night, and I thank the lord for waking me in the morning. Prayer is who I am. I strongly believe in prayer, but not in school. Throughout this paper, we will examine and see what the three branches of government have to say about prayer in school. There are three branches of the USA government and they are the legislative branch, the executive branch, and the judicial branch. The legislative branch makes the laws, the executive branch carries out the laws and the judicial branch evaluates the laws. We will start with the legislative branch that has an important job of making the laws. This branch consists of the senate and the House of Representatives. When it comes to this branch of government, they are for praying in school, in Alabama a law was just passed that says students and teachers must pray for 15 minutes in the mornings. I believe that you should be able to pray if you want to pray. Although I believe in prayer, I do not agree with the fact that they are making the students and teachers pray in the mornings. I believe that it should be up to you, not everyone is a Christian and not everyone has the same beliefs as others, because of religions, this could also be offensive to someone of a different religion.
