Thanks for the nice photo of "George Washington kneeling in prayer" at the entrance to the House of Delegates. President Reagan 30 years ago on the National Day of Prayer said, "The most sublime picture in American History is of George Washington on his knees in prayer... That image personifies a people who know it is not enough to depend on our courage or goodness, we must depend on God, our Father and Preserver." PresidentWashington@me.com
