As we remember the 67th anniversary of the day
that began the liberation of Europe from Nazi tyranny,
the American Family Association of Michigan urges you
to join us in offering this same prayer for the men and women
who serve our country today in harm’s way — once again
fighting “to preserve our Republic, our religion, and our civilization.”

Let us also pray that the day will soon come again, that the President of
the United States does not hesitate — in times of peace and of war, in crisis or
in thanksgiving — to publicly lead the American people in reverent and
humble prayer for God’s blessings upon our Nation and its freedom.

As President Roosevelt prayed: “Thy will be done, Almighty God.”
