“It is impossible to govern the world without God and the Bible.” George Washington
“America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.” Abraham Lincoln
“Hold fast to the Bible as the sheet-anchor of your liberties; write its precepts in your hearts and practice them in your lives. To the influence of this book we are indebted for all the progress made in true civilization, and to this we must look as our guide in the future. Righteousness exalteth a nation; but sin is a reproach to any people.” Ulysses S. Grant
“The world is very different now. For man holds in his mortal hands the power to abolish all forms of human poverty and all forms of human life. And yet the same revolutionary beliefs for which our forebears fought are still at issue around the globe—the belief that the rights of man come not from the generosity of the state, but from the hand of God…… Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty…… With a good conscience our only sure reward, with history the final judge of our deeds, let us go forth to lead the land we love, asking His blessing and His help, but knowing that here on earth God’s work must truly be our own.” John F. Kennedy I believe with all my heart that standing up for America means standing up for the God who has so blessed our land. We need God’s help to guide our nation through stormy seas, but we can’t expect Him to protect America in a crisis if we just leave Him on the shelf in our day to day living.” Ronald Reagan
Dear, Heavenly, Father, so many times we’ve fallen short of your expectations. We’ve wandered from your teachings. The staunch resolve of our founders to keep You at the center of this country has been trampled on and destroyed by those who would do us harm. On this National Day of Prayer, I ask that you instill in us a new sense of patriotism – a new sense of unity – a new zeal for you and your love for us. Without you, we will fail. With you we can accomplish the impossible. Amen!
