Prayers and Presidents
“Went to church and fasted all day.”
—GEORGE WASHINGTON, Diary Entry, June 1, 1774, day British blockaded Boston’s harbor.
From George Washington’s orders for troops to attend divine services, to Abraham Lincoln’s annual day of thanksgiving, to Harry S. Truman’s annual day of prayer, America’s leaders of the past have a tradition of faith, especially in times of crises!
There is a chapter on every president of the past, from George Washington through George W. Bush, with excerpts from proclamations, addresses to congress, executive orders, personal correspondence and memoirs. As America faces challenges in the economy, from terrorism to natural disasters, one can gain inspiring faith from leaders of the past.
