10)  Presidential prayers:

President Franklin D. Roosevelt leading the nation in prayer over the radio on June 6, 1944 (D-Day). His prayer began like this:

"Almighty God: Our sons, pride of our Nation, this day have set upon a mighty endeavor, a struggle to preserve our Republic, our religion, and our civilization, and to set free a suffering humanity. Lead them straight and true; give strength to their arms, stoutness to their hearts, steadfastness in their faith. They will need Thy blessings …"

 

 

President Ronald Reagan once gave this prophetic word to his countrymen: "If we ever forget that we are One Nation Under God, then we will be a nation gone under."
