NH Mom Banned from Praying on School Grounds

A New Hampshire mother has been banned from praying at her kids' high school.

Lizarda Urena has two children enrolled at Concord High School in Concord, N.H.

She started praying on school grounds in 2011 after two bullets were found in a restroom at the school. Urena said she prayed aloud as students entered the school every morning.

She was recently told by school officials that the prayers were not welcome after someone filed a complaint with the Freedom From Religion Foundation.

"They told me, no, no more," the mother of two said, with tears in her eyes. "I stand up, lift my hands to praise the Lord with my Bible holding and sometimes kneeling."

Urena said said she will continue to pray for the school, just no longer on school grounds.
