It’s officially “Bring Back the Holy Bible and Christian Prayer in Schools Month.” And Steven Andrew, president of USA Christian Ministries, is working to make it a year-round reality.

“Our children need God back in schools,” says Andrew, who is calling Christians nationwide to bring the Bible and prayer back into public schools.
Andrew’s effort is part of a broader campaign among pastors, teachers and parents to bring up America’s children in the training and admonition of the Lord according to Ephesians 6:4. With millions of school children praying that God will be allowed back onto campus at See You at the Pole events across the country, Andrew is expecting a breakthrough.
History supports God in schools. American schools were designed to disciple our nation. The Bible was the first textbook in public schools. Children prayed Christian prayers in school for 355 years until 1962, Andrew notes.
In fact, he boldly calls separation of church and state a lie, arguing that it’s not what our Founding Fathers practiced or intended, it’s not constitutional and it’s actually a sin against God.
