The brutal murder of his father shaped Paul Harvey’s life and career through many tears. He had a wonderful high school teacher who helped launch him into radio. This man became a champion for Christ, His church, for those in uniform and for America the nation.
Paul Harvey wrote a prayer in 1952. It was a plea that God would raise up a certain kind of president for our country:
“Almighty God, send us a leader.
A man with his feet planted firmly in American tradition.
A tall man…with his head above the fog of selfish interests.
Not a common man. This time, God, send us “an
uncommon man”…a statesman.
We don’t deserve him, but send him anyway.
And hurry, please. The hour is late. The candle of freedom
So now in 2012, may we all pray for our nation and leaders!
