Confederate Soldier’s Prayer

.
Jesus said;“And all things, whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive.” {Matthew 21-22}!  Our Lord Jesus Christ has heard the prayers of our forefathers, delivered unto him in anguished tears, by those who fought, suffered, bled and died, for the freedom of our people and the independence of our nation, the Confederate States of America.  God is not suspended or trapped in time and he has even now combined the prayers of our forefathers and foremothers with our own.  When the time has fully come, he will answer our prayers according to the wisdom of his own divine providence.

A CHRISTIAN CONFEDERATE
SOLDIER'S PRAYER

 .
”Brave Christian Confederate warriors,
should fate find us in battle,
May our cause be just!
May our leaders have clear vision!
May our courage not falter!
May we be triumphant and earn victory,
as we show mercy to our enemies.
May our efforts bring lasting peace!
May those we serve always appreciate our sacrifice.
May we return to our loved ones unharmed!
Should we be harmed, may our wounds heal!
Should we perish in the struggle,
may God embrace us and find for us
a place in His Kingdom.

 
 * * *
In Jesus Holy and powerful Name.  Amen!”

“In my view, the Christian religion is the most important and one of the first things in which all children, under a free government ought to be instructed...No truth is more evident to my mind than that the Christian religion must be the basis of any government intended to secure the rights and privileges of a free people.” ... Noah Webster

“God governs in the affairs of man.  And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without his notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without His aid?  We have been assured in the Sacred Writings that except the Lord build the house, they labor in vain that build it.  I firmly believe this.  I also believe that, without His concurring aid, we shall succeed in this political building no better than the builders of Babel”
