Answers to Prayer and Fasting, part 3

Embark on a historical voyage with David Barton, America's premier historian, as we uncover the profound influence of prayer and fasting during the American Revolution. Unveil the tales of fervent faith and providential storms that shaped battles and bolstered the spirits of a fledgling nation. From lesser-known victories aboard ships to the miraculous fog that saved Washington's troops at the Battle of Long Island, these narratives are not merely chronicles of warfare, but testaments to the deep spiritual convictions of our forebears. As we navigate through the icy waters of the Delaware River, the miracle at the Battle of Trenton looms into view. Hear how General Washington's audacious Christmas attack on the Hessians, aided by the cloak of a severe winter storm, turned the tides of war and reinvigorated a weary Continental Army. These moments weren't just military maneuvers; they were synchronized steps in a divinely choreographed dance of victory and hope. Concluding our journey, we reflect on the transformative power of prayer and fasting in the birth of a nation. We call upon modern-day patriots to carry the torch of our founders. At WallBuilders. com, we offer resources to fuel personal growth and community engagement—because the legacy of liberty is a flame that must be kept alive across generations. Join us as we honor the past and chart a course for the future, standing firm on the foundation of faith that has sustained us through centuries. Support the Show.
