From the Arkansas constitution–
Article 2, Section 24:
All men have a natural and indefeasible right to worship Almighty God according to the dictates of their own consciences;
We cry out, Lord. Guard the freedom of religion in this beautiful state. May they preserve not only the freedom to worship, but also the right to raise their children in their faith; the right to have religious literature; the right to meet with co-religionists; the right to raise funds; the right to appoint or elect their religious leaders, and to carry out charitable activities, to evangelize, and to have religious education or seminary training. Amen.

But what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” (that is, the word of faith which we preach): (Romans 10:8 )
Holy Spirit, let your word of faith be faithfully proclaimed throughout this diocese. Give us ears to hear and hearts to respond to the word of faith.
that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised him from the dead, you will be saved. (Romans 10:9)
Jesus, please help us speak the word of faith and confess you before others. Lord, we have been silent when we should have spoken. Help us repent of our lack of trust in you.
For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. (Romans 10:10)
Father, we are made in your image — help us believe in our hearts and use our mouths for the purposes we were created — to confess Jesus and him crucified.
A word received: Pray for my wounded ones.
