In 1787, representatives from each of the 13 states met in Philadelphia to iron out differences that threatened to destroy the new nation. However, the battles between them intensified until statements made by Benjamin Franklin brought a sobering air to the room.
"I have lived, sir, a long time, and the longer I live, the more convincing proofs I see of this truth - that god governs in the affairs of men. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without His notice, is it probable that tan empire can rise without His aid?
... I therefore beg leave to move that henceforth prayers imploring the assistance of Heaven, and its blessing on our deliberations, be held in this Assembly every morning before we proceed to business..."
Our Constitution was written shortly thereafter, by men who earnestly sought God. This enduring print captures that event, The First Prayer in congress, with exquisite detail.
