Pray For Our Country On This Election Day

This is an election like no other in U.S. history.

Pray that God will lead this great land and that we will be that City on a Hill, a shining beacon of freedom in a darkened world.

Ronald Reagan said it well in his closing remarks before the first Conservative Political Action Conference in 1974.

We cannot escape our destiny, nor should we try to do so. The leadership of the free world was thrust upon us two centuries ago in that little hall of Philadelphia. In the days following World War II, when the economic strength and power of America was all that stood between the world and the return to the dark ages, Pope Pius XII said, "The American people have a great genius for splendid and unselfish actions. Into the hands of America God has placed the destinies of an afflicted mankind."

We are indeed, and we are today, the last best hope of man on earth.
