More than 50 years after the ban on government endorsed prayer in school, one ministry is hoping to revisit the discussion by bringing the Bible back to schoolyards across America.

This Thursday, more than 300,000 students will let their light shine on their local campus though an initiative called "Bring Your Bible to School Day," backed by Focus on the Family and Alliance Defending Freedom.

The one-day event is completely student directed, meaning Christian youth groups lead the activities.

Focus on the Family says the purpose is to empower students to express their faith in a respectful way that shows the love of Christ.

In this season where religious freedom is a hotly debated topic, parents and participating students are encouraged to know their legal rights. Though there may be some negative reaction to witnessing on school grounds, they say bringing your Bible to school is a way of celebrating faith and religious freedom at the same time.

Students who voluntarily join this movement are encouraged to be a "voice of hope" while also respecting authority.

Focus on the Family points to young Biblical leaders such as Daniel, Esther and Timothy who changed their culture by "taking a courageous stand for their belief in God."
