    Surge Summary: This week marks the 79th anniversary of D-Day … a turning point in the Allies WWII efforts to vanquish Nazi Germany. Then-President Franklin Roosevelt was not hesitant to openly beseech God for His blessing on the nation’s resistance to Hitler. We need to publicly declare our need for God to deliver America from the threats that imperil her today.

    Remembering D-Day

    [Tuesday was] the 79th anniversary of D-Day.  More than 150,000 American and Allied troops, many just 18 years-old or in their early 20s, landed on the beaches of Normandy to liberate an entire continent from the evils of national socialism (Nazis).

    We might be able to honor those brave men best today by re-reading the tremendous prayer that President Franklin D. Roosevelt delivered to the nation as the liberation of Europe was under way.  Here is a brief excerpt:

    “Almighty God: Our sons, pride of our Nation, this day have set upon a mighty endeavor, a struggle to preserve our Republic, our religion, and our civilization, and to set free a suffering humanity.  Lead them straight and true; give strength to their arms, stoutness to their hearts, steadfastness in their faith. . .

    “And, O Lord, give us Faith. Give us Faith in Thee; Faith in our sons; Faith in each other; Faith in our united crusade. Let not the keenness of our spirit ever be dulled. Let not the impacts of temporary events . . . deter us in our unconquerable purpose.

    “With Thy blessing, we shall prevail over the unholy forces of our enemy. . . Thy will be done, Almighty God. Amen.”

    This is a good prayer to remember in our own pleas that God would give us that same strength and courage as we endeavor to save our country today from the increasingly unhinged socialist, authoritarian left.

    The leftists obsessed with race and “systemic racism” should learn the history of World War II.  America and our allies defeated the evil of Nazism that was also obsessed with race and really made systemic racism part of its totalitarian regime.
