-- From "Sarah Palin meets with Billy Graham, calls for more Godly America" by News Services, St. Louis Post Dispatch 12/4/09
The video was released Friday by the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, the 2008 Republican candidate for vice president said, “No one person has all the right answers. It takes a united nation, and it does take godly counsel, and it takes prayer and answers to prayer -- and a collective humble heart of a nation seeking God’s hand of protection and his blessings of prosperity. I think if we can get back to that, our country will be a safer, more prosperous and healthier nation.”
The former Alaska governor referred to an Abraham Lincoln proclamation that declared a day of national humiliation, fasting, and prayer.
She said the United States has been “touched by God” because the nation’s early leaders dedicated the country to God.
“If we could get back to that -- that humbleness, with that kind of contrite spirit -- I think that we would be able to be provided more of the answers to so many of the great challenges that we’re facing,” Palin said. “And these are huge challenges, whether we’re talking about health care, whether we’re talking about energy independence, whether we’re talking about national security measures.”
Billy Graham said . . . “I, like many people, have been impressed with her strong commitment to her faith, to family and love of country.”
