As the judge correctly wrote, a government-decreed National Day of Prayer is unconstitutional for the same reason that a government-decreed National Day of Blasphemy would be unconstitutional. Or a National Day of Praising Allah, or National Scientology Day, or a National No-Praying Day, or a National Day of Atheism.

People can pray as much as they want, every day of the year. But the government has no business spending tax dollars in exhorting everyone to say prayers.
