A Prayer of Abraham Lincoln

We all face times when it seems the situation before us is impossible. Let us remember the simple prayer of one of our greatest Presidents when He faced insurmountable odds.

President Lincoln himself remained steadfast in his faith even when General Robert E. Lee led his army of 76,000 men into Pennsylvania. He said these words to his general who was wounded at Gettysburg: “When everyone seemed panic-stricken…I went to my room…and got down on my knees before Almighty God and prayed…Soon a sweet comfort crept into my soul that God Almighty had taken the whole business into His own hands…”

OH Lord may we do the same, may we put the business of our lives into your capable hands. We trust in you to lead us with all wisdom and compassion to produce better ways to live and make a difference in our world today. Bless us all with courage and resolve to do the good work you have called us to do. In these challenging and troubling times help us remain steadfast in our faith. God Bless!
