Mitt Romney’s Statement on National Day of Prayer

Today is America’s National Day of Prayer

Governor Mitt Romney released the following statement:

“Today I join with people of all faiths to express devotion and gratitude to the Lord, who has so richly blessed us. On this National Day of Prayer, we are reminded of those who have sacrificed so much to give us the freedom to worship freely and to speak openly about our faith. As I travel across this country every day, I see God’s grace and faithfulness in the lives of so many Americans who share their stories. And it is my prayer that as we strive to better America and to protect her from those who would do her harm, the Lord will keep us strong and free and we will remain one nation under God.”

    Thank you for sharing, Jayde! Oh, how America needs a man who truly believes in the greatness of America and God’s hand in its establishment!

    (Did the current POTUS make any statement for today or organize any prayer event after “spiking the ball” the past few days?)

    ccr – You’re welcome; it was my pleasure.

    Today is a wonderful and important American observance. From the NDofP website:

    The National Day of Prayer is an annual observance held on the first Thursday of May, inviting people of all faiths to pray for the nation. It was created in 1952 by a joint resolution of the United States Congress, and signed into law by President Harry S. Truman.

    Yes, as customary, Obama did sign a proclamation.

    This is such a great post!! I am praying for this country & I am praying for Gov. Romney & his family. They must be under tremendous pressure. We need him so badly as president at this time. I hope & pray that they can be true to their beliefs, that Romney will be elected & that this country will be able to get back on its feet to be the shinning city on the hill that it was intended to be. I am also a Mormon & no we are not a cult. We are just regular people doing the best we can to help others & make this world a better place. I hope other people of other religions will do the same.
