Proverbs 20:18, Every purpose is established by counsel: and with good advice make war.
“Forasmuch as it is the indispensable Duty of all Men to adore the superintending Providence of Almighty God; to acknowledge with Gratitude their Obligation to him for benefits received, and to implore such farther Blessings as they stand in Need of; And it having pleased him in his abundant Mercy not only to continue to us the innumerable Bounties of his common Providence, but also to smile upon us in the Prosecution of a just and necessary War, for the Defense and Establishment of our unalienable Rights and Liberties; particularly in that he hath been pleased in so great a Measure to prosper the Means used for the Support of our Troops and to crown our Arms with most signal success:”-Continental Congress, November 1, 1777.
|Father God, war is inevitable in this fallen world and today we are indeed engaged in a war against terrorism sparked by an attack on American soil which claimed the lives of precious thousands. Lord, we ask that You instill wisdom and courage in the minds of our military leaders, from the Commander in Chief, to the lowest ranking officer. Show them brilliant strategies in benevolent wisdom; give America victory in the defense of freedom and liberty and may we become a shining example of righteousness in the face of unwanted war.
