Because they couldn’t resolve their conflicts, [the delegates of the Constitutional Convention] picked up their hats and coats and started to leave. Suddenly Benjamin Franklin spoke up.
“Wait a minute, gentlemen,” he is reported to have said. “This country was conceived in faith in God. Many of us here believe in prayer. Let us get upon our knees and pray to Almighty God and see whether God shall give us the answer to our dilemma.”
Upon their knees those men went, and out of that prayer meeting came the immortal Constitution of the United States of America.
What dilemma in your nation – or in your life – is compelling you to get down on your knees and seek God’s answer?
If my people…pray and seek my face…I will hear from heaven.
2 Chronicles 7:14
