FDR's D-Day Landing Prayer Inclusion at the WWII Memorial in Washington

Chris Long : Jun 9, 2011 : Ohio Christian Alliance

"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...." - Franklin D. Roosevelt

(Washington, DC)—Honoring those brave men and women who served our country in WWII, Congressman Bill Johnson of Ohio's 6th District has introduced legislation that will place FDR's D-Day Landing Prayer at the WWII Memorial in Washington, DC - H.R. 2070.

FDR's Landing PrayerSixty-seven years ago, on the morning of June 6, 1944, as Allied forces were landing on the beaches in Normandy, President Roosevelt went to the airwaves and prayed with our nation for God's blessing and protection upon our brave fighting men. He prayed, "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...."

Ohio Christian Alliance President Chris Long stated, "President Roosevelt's prayer articulated the great crusade that was underway to liberate millions suffering under tyranny. He noblized the war effort and paid honor to the fallen and those veterans who fought courageously in the conflict. It is only fitting that succeeding generations learn of this prayer that was offered at that most poignant moment in our nation's history."

We therefore urge members of Congress to support the FDR D-Day Prayer Project and pass the legislation that will allow its inclusion at the WWII Memorial in Washington, DC. We commend Congressman Johnson and the Congressional co-sponsors of this historic legislation.
