Invocation receives standing ovation, despite attempts to stop it.

This is what we, as Christians, are called to do. We were never promised it was going to be easy, but we were promised we would never be alone. This is what graduating high school student and class President Jonathan Hardwick of Lincoln County High School in Stanford, Kentucky learned last Friday. He received a standing ovation during his graduation ceremony after leading attendees in prayer, despite an attempt by six students who had attempted to have the invocation banned.

As reported by ChristianNews.net Hardwick stood by his beliefs and values. A bold move that not only went noticed, but was cheered by a crowd re-energized in the very soul.

“Thank you for helping us get here safely today, Lord,” he prayed. “And thank you for the many blessings You have given us.”

At first, the room filled with claps and cheers for Hardwick, but several seconds later, graduation attendees rose to their feet.

Prayer has been a tradition at Lincoln County High School, but this year, six students approached Principal Tim Godbey and asked him to put an end to the practice.

We need more Davids, like Hardwick, in today’s society…especially amongst our youth. This is a breath of fresh air to say the least.
