THE IRON PEN by Daniel Hite

Thanksgiving 2015

As part of his 1944 Thanksgiving Proclamation, President Franklin D. Roosevelt expressed the sentiments of Americans from coast to coast, and our American armed forces around the world. I think these prayerful words are certainly applicable for America today…

“For the preservation of our way of life from the threat of destruction; for the unity of spirit which has kept our Nation strong; for our abiding faith in freedom; and for the promise of an enduring peace, we should lift up our hearts in thanksgiving.
For the harvest that has sustained us and, in its fullness, brought succor to other peoples; for the bounty of our soil, which has produced the sinews of war for the protection of our liberties; and for a multitude of private blessings, known only in our hearts, we should give united thanks to God.”

I may not agree with FDR’s politics but he was a real leader when America needed it. Principle ruled political correctness and prayer permeated the warp and woof of our national fabric. May God be the center of our national trust once again, and may public prayers of petition and thanksgiving be boldly offered without fear of rebuke or reprisal. We pray that God will continue to bless America.
