During crucial events in our nation’s history, the American people, as a nation, often turned to God for direction, guidance and Divine intervention.During a time of devastating drought, the pilgrims sought God’s intervention to bring rain and a bountiful harvest, which He did.
Upon hearing the news of the battles of Lexington and Concord, the First Continental Congress sought God’s Divine Providence as they prepared for war against a far superior military power, Great Britain.
During the Constitutional Convention, Benjamin Franklin reminded the delegates that without God’s assistance in building this nation, they would be no more successful than the builders of the tower of Babel. Franklin then encouraged them to join together in prayer and ask for God’s Divine intervention on their proceedings.
On June 6, 1944, as our soldiers, sailors and airmen landed on the beaches of Normandyto liberate the people of France from Nazi oppression, President Roosevelt asked the people of America to join together to pray for God to lead our men, “straight and true; give strength to their arms, stoutness to their hearts, steadfastness in their faith,” as they“struggle to preserve our Republic, our religion, and our civilization, and to set free a suffering humanity.”
Today, there is still a “suffering humanity,” seeking the most basic right given by God to every man, the right to live. In Georgia, approximately 33,000 children, every year, are denied their right to life through the practice of human abortion.

human beings not yet born.
