Photo of praying football players causes stir on Facebook
BISMARCK, N.D. — North Dakota’s High School Activities Association says it has not created a new rule banning prayer at sports games. The statement comes in response to a Facebook post of praying players that caused a stir.
A photo of the Bismarck St. Mary’s and Kindred football teams praying together after Saturday’s playoff game in Bismarck has been shared more than 2,500 times on Facebook. The post by a local resident states that the activities association “said no public prayers before the game.”

Practical prayer is harder on the soles of your shoes than on the knees of your trousers.
