Three Cheers for Jesus

Barb Wire

(1 min Audio Report – Faith2Action)


When the ACLU pressured school officials in Oneida, Tennessee to omit the opening prayer before their high school football games, the cheerleading squad stepped up. When the announcer called for a moment of silence, cheerleader Asia Canada led the revolt to recite the Lord’s prayer. Not only did her fellow cheerleaders join in, but so did the team, the crowd and the opposing team’ s cheerleaders. The ACLU did not demand that everyone in attendance be arrested.

Jesus said, “…everyone who confesses Me before men, I will also confess him before My Father who is in heaven. But whoever denies Me before men, I will also deny him before My Father who is in heaven.”   And by the way, Oneida also won 47-4.
