In December 1944, during World War II, General George Patton’s Third Army prepared to cross the Rhine River for an offensive against Hitler’s Nazi Germany. The problem, however, was the rainy weather. Therefore, General Patton requested, from the Army Chaplin, a prayer addressing the weather condition. Within the hour, the Chaplin presented a written prayer to the General. After receiving it, General Patton had the following prayer expeditiously distributed to every soldier in the Third Army:

“Almighty and most merciful Father, we humbly beseech Thee, of Thy great goodness, to restrain these immoderate rains with which we have had to contend. Grant us fair weather for Battle. Graciously hearken to us as soldiers who call upon Thee that, armed with Thy power, we may advance from victory to victory, and crush the oppression and wickedness of our enemies and establish Thy justice among men and nations. Amen.”

The day after they prayed the distributed prayer, the weather cleared and remained cleared long enough for the allied armies to deliver an overwhelming defeat for the enemy.

A cynical world will most likely say that it was all happen-chance. However, there is no denying that these things happened after the soldiers prayed.

“With men this is impossible; but with God all things are possible.”  Matthew 19:26

PSALM 41:1-3 (KJV)

Blessed is he that considereth the poor:

1. …the LORD will deliver him in time of trouble.

2. The LORD will preserve him,

3. …and keep him alive;

4. …and he shall be blessed upon the earth:

5. …and Thou wilt not deliver him unto the will of his enemies.

6. The LORD will strengthen him upon the bed of languishing:

7. Thou wilt make all his bed in his sickness.
