National Day of Prayer: WE NEED IT!!!!!!!!

Washington's farewell Address:

"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity,
religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man
claim the tribute of patriotism, who should labor to subvert these great pillars
of human happiness, these firmest props of the duties of men and
citizens... Let it simply be asked, where is the security for property,
for reputation, for life, if the sense of religious obligation desert the oaths
which are the instruments of investigation in courts of justice? And let
us with caution indulge the supposition that morality can be maintained without
religion. Whatever may be conceded to the influence of refined
education...reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national
morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principle."
~George Washington
