Start your morning with Dawn and Steve as they share a devotional from Blackaby Ministries International about interceding with the Father for revival!
School officials at Bremerton High School (BHS) suspended—and later fired—football coach Joe Kennedy because he prayed a brief, quiet prayer after football games. A lawsuit was filed against the school district, arguing that banning coaches from quietly praying, just because they can be seen by the public, is wrong and violates the Constitution. The U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington, and then the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, sided with the school district. The case eventually landed in the U.S. Supreme Court. In January 2022, the Supreme Court agreed to hear the case. The Supreme Court has ruled in favor of Coach Joe. Read more about his life and case in the book Average Joe: The Coach Joe Kennedy Story.
