In Feb. 9, 1941, Winston Churchill made a speech broadcasted from London addressing the people of Great Britain and America’s President…President Roosevelt.
President Roosevelt in providing hope and perseverance to Churchill, wrote out a verse, in his own handwriting, from Longfellow, which he said, “applies to you people [the people of Great Britain] as it does to us [the people of the USA].” Here is the verse: . . .
“Sail on, O Ship of State! Sail on, O Union, strong and great! Humanity with all its fears, With all the hopes of future years, Is hanging breathless on thy fate!”
Churchill, in his speech, asked: What is the answer that I shall give, in your name [the people of Great Britain], to this great man, the thrice-chosen head of a nation of a hundred and thirty millions? Here is the answer which I will give to President Roosevelt: Put your confidence in us. Give us your faith and your blessing and, under [God’s] Providence, all will be well [see note #1 below]. We shall not fail or falter; we shall not weaken or tire [see note #2 below]. Neither the sudden shock of battle, nor the long-drawn trials of vigilance and exertion will wear us down. Give us the tools, and we will finish the job [see note #3 below].
Of course I know what these leaders were referring to within this speech, but I wish to put forth a much higher understanding. I pray for a return to leaders of honesty and integrity; leaders who actually care about the governed, instead of abusing them as the leaders since Reagan have been doing.
Note #1 – God has given us the gift of faith and His blessing…so as Christians, we should think & believe that ultimately, all will be well regardless of your present situation.
Note #2 – With God’s blessing and the power of the Holy Spirit…we shall not fail or falter; we shall not weaken or tire. With the Holy Spirit, you have the power to do much more than you could ever hope or think.
Note #3 – God has already given us the tools to finish the job in the advocacy and intercession work of Jesus Christ. We have already been given the support & power of the Holy Spirit for those who believe in Jesus.
Let’s all bring God back into America! Vote for Christian leadership where it can be found.
