FDR’s Powerful Prayer After Pearl Harbor    



  By: Dr. Jake Jacobs
   Published : December 7, 2017


It’s been 76 years since the attack on Pearl Harbor. Shortly after, Winston Churchill, prime minister of Great Britain, went to Washington, D.C. with his chiefs of staff to meet President Franklin D. Roosevelt and the American military leaders to coordinate plans for the defeat of their common enemy. Both FDR and Churchill appreciated the majesty and symbolism of public worship and prayer, especially in wartime, which was in vivid contrast to the pagan Fascism and Socialism of their enemies.

On December 24, 1941, just 17 days after the Japanese attack, President Roosevelt hosted Churchill at the White House for a tree lighting ceremony, performance by the Marine Band, and special message to the nation declaring January 1, 1942, an official day of prayer for the United States.
