Knowing that intercessory prayer is our mightiest weapon and the supreme call for all Christians today, I pleadingly urge our people everywhere to pray. Believing that prayer is the greatest contribution that our people can make in this critical hour, I humbly urge that we take the time to pray - to really pray.
Let there be prayer at sunup, at noonday, at sundown, at midnight - all through the day. Let us pray for our children, our youth, our aged, our pastors, our homes. Let us pray for the churches.
Let us pray for ourselves, that we may not lose the word 'concern' our of our Christian vocabulary. Let us pray for our nation. Let us pry for those who have never known Jesus Christ and His redeeming love, for moral forces everywhere, for our national leaders.
Let prayer be our passion. Let prayer be our practice."
- General Robert E. Lee, 1863
