Our President & Their Prayers (Proclamations of Faith by America’s Leaders)

Title:  Our President & Their Prayers (Proclamations of Faith by America’s Leaders)
Author:  Rand Paul & James Robsin
Pages:  160
Year:  2015
Publisher:  Center Street
My rating is 5 stars.
When looking at the title, one might tend to think it contains pages upon pages of prayers with little else to offer and that would be a wrong conclusion.  Inside the covers are pages that grant us a glimpse in the hearts and minds of various Presidents.  Included with portions of prayers are explanations into who the man was, what he thought or experienced in life and how he felt.  These Presidents felt deeply about America and how blessed she truly is in how she was conceived and more.
Readers are reminded of history some of which I wonder has ever been taught or made available to Americans as a whole.  One reads this book and quickly captures the heart of solid belief that without God or a hand of Providence America would cease to be.  There may be ideas expressed or history understood with a particular viewpoint, but isn’t that what makes our nation great?  We can express our hearts, minds, souls and be humbled by being reminded that “God governs in the affairs of men.” (Benjamin Franklin)
Here is a book that should grace the shelf of homes across the land so that for generations to come a resource is nearby from which to remember our history and the exhortation to stand fast in our day!  We need to have books and other media to share with others who don’t know or understand America.  We must remain vigilant lest we make the price many have paid null and void.
God Bless America!
