  I am just fine with that wording for the pledge. I think that is a  great idea.  As for praying in class, yes, I believe that students  should be given a moment at the start of each day, and several times  during it, if necessary, to pray. I don't think the prayer itself  should be instructed by the teacher, just the time and place. However,  I am willing to bet some atheists of children in school will challenge  this wording and any rights of religious students to have an  opportunity to pray during the course of the school day, because it in  someway infringes on their rights.
  Best to you Ted,
