PRAYER
~ ~ i SAVE
..____. AMERICA?
)f- In the days of the Civil War, a personal
friend o f Abraham Lincoln was a visitor at the
White House. " I had been spending three weeks
with Mr. Lincoln as his guest. One night- it was
just after the Ba tcle of Bull Run- I was rcscless
and could not sleep .. . from the private room
where the presi<lenc slept, I heard low cones, for
the door was parcly open. Instinctively I w andered in, and there I saw a ·sight which I have
never forgotten. It was the president, kneeling
before an open Bible . . . h is back was coward
me. I shall never forget his prayer: 'Oh, thou
God, that heard Solomon in the night when he
prayed and cried for wisdom, hear me. I cannot
lead these people, I cannot guide the affairs of
this nation without Thy help.. .. 0 God, hear
me and save chis nation.' "
George Washington, our first president, who
prayed in the snow at Valley Forge said, "The
event is in the hands of God." When the tide of
batcle was unfavorable, Washington said, " How
will it end? God will direct.
When the leaders of our country assembled co
write the constitution, it was proposed by Ben-
�jarnin Franklin that each session be opened w ith
prayer. Franklin said, " I have lived a long time,
and the longer I live the more convincing proof
I see of this truth- that God governs the affairs
of men. And if a sparrow cannot fall to the
ground without His notice, is it possible that an
empire can rise without His aid? "
Our nation today is great because it was
founded by men who feared God and men who
believed in prayer. But in our generati on, prayer
has been replaced by political intrigue, material ism and a mistaken notion that our private and
national affairs can be run with01..:t God.
Today our American way of life is threatened
from within and from all sides. The dangers facing our country and the entire world are so great
that they cannot be taken lighdy.
Here and there throughout America, vo ices are
heard as individuals and groups begin to call on
God in prayer. Young evangelist Billy Graham 's
voice is heard as he calls the nation and individuals to repentance, to faith in Christ and to
prayer.
But this whole nation must be moved to
prayer. So great are the dangers, so grave the
perils, so tremendous the political problems, so
important the election issues, that it is imperative that we la y hold upon the Lord God in
prayer for His will.
Yes, prayer can save America! But we cannot
really lay hold upon a holy God until we have
come to know Hirn as our Father. So that we
might know Hirn, the loving Father sent His Son
to be t-he Saviour: "For God so loved the world,
that He gave His onl y begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Hirn should not perish, but
have everlasting life . . . . As many as received
�him, to them gave He power to become the sons
of God, even to them that believe on His Name"
(John 3 : 16; 1:12) .
Yes, prayer can save America. There is only
one way out, and that is up! If we do not turn to
Goel, we will be enveloped by godless Communism. It is either revival or ruin! It is now or
never! The answer will not be found in the U.N.
or NATO. The answer will be found only when
we are spiritually awakened and call upon the
Lord our God. Spiritual values must be restored.
We must return to the faith of our fathers, to the
God of our mothers- and to the family altar w ith
its prayer.
Let's each one lay hold of this tremendous
promise given by God : " If my people, which are
called by my name, shall humble themselves, and
pray, and seek my face, and turn from their
wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and
will forgive their sin, and will heal their land
(II Chronicles 7: 14) .

I accuse m y
parents.~.
~
Millions of lost souls will stand in the judgment day before the Great White Throne
and, hearing their condemnation, will hysterically scream, "I accuse my p::ircnts."
There are thousands of parents who have
given their children everything but God.
They have provided them with nourishing
food, warm clothing and liberal educations
. . . but no Saviour. They have showered
them with gifts and protected them from
harm . . . but have not provided a family
altar.
They have read to them Dick Tracy and
Superman, but not the Bible. They have taken them to the movies, but not to Sunday
school. They have cursed before their children, but never prayed. Thus thousands of
children have lived to curse their parents
for bringing them into the world and raising
them without Christ.
One of America's great moral problems
today is juvenile delinquency. The majority
of criminal offenses are being committed by
teen-agers. They have no reverence for God
and thus no respect for authority. Public
11


1


�schools have instilled their anti-Bible philosophy of "behaviorism" in their heads and
they are expressing themselves to the utter
consternation of educators, statesmen, clergymen and police.
Juvenile delinquency is but the out-growth
of adult delinquency. The son will be no
better than his father, the daughter no better
than her mother. A God-less, Bible-less,
drunken father will produce an equally
worthless son. A smoking, beer-drinking,
gadabout mother will pr.::>duce a loose-living
and pleasure-loving daughter.
God Almighty will hold you parents accountable for sending your children to hell.
Judge Healy of the Juvenile Court of Detroit,
addressing a Young People's Rally on July
7, 1945, said, "Eighty percent of the youngsters arraigned in my court came from homes
in which there has been no religious training." Bible-less homes produce potential
criminals.
The breakdown of morals among our
youth is the direct result of throwing the
Bible out of the homes, schools, and churches
')f America. Boys and girls who are already
reaping the disastrous results of their sinful
orgies, are already crying, "I accuse my
parents; they never told me about God,
Christ, the Bible, sin or sex."
To be responsible for the demoralization
of a youngster is a crime of colossal proportions. If your child goes to hell, it will be,
to a great extent, your fault. If you are on
�your way to the lake of fire, your child is
following in your footsteps .
Friend, you can lead you,; children to
heaven or to hell.. The sole solution is for
you to accept the Lord Jesus Christ as your
personal Saviour. "This is a faithful saying,
and worthy of all acceptance, that Christ
Jesus came into the world to save sinners"
(I Timothy l: 15). Believe God's Word and
receive His Son now-and you will be saved.
Then you must begin living for your Lord
in your home by immediately establishing a
time each day when you gather your family
together for prayer and the reading of the
Bible. Then , by God's help, endeavor to lead
your children to the Saviour, who in turn
will keep them from the pollutions of this
world. "For the wages of sin is death; but
the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus
Christ our Lord" (Romans 6:23).

�HOW DO
YOU KNOW YOU
ARE RIGHT?
• A sailor speaking to a passenger on one of
th,e Great Lakes steamer a few years ago
said, "There are about 1500 religions in the
world; how do you know you're right?"
"How does your Captain know he's right
when he wants to steer a straight course for
port, but owing to a heavy fog he can't see
the harbor lights?'" I asked in reply.
"Whf, he goes by the chart and compass."
"Just so, and on this one vital point as to
how a m;m can be just before God, and know
that he is sure of eternal salvation, we may
know that we are absolutely right. God has
not left us to find our own course across the
sea of time without a chart to guide us. The
Word of God is a lamp to our feet and a light
for our path, Without it we would grope in
darkness, like a ship that has lost its rudder
on a starless night. It is both a revelation
from God and a revelation of God, showing
us our true condition as sinners before Him,
and His great love in sending 'His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him
should not perish, but have everlasting life'
(John3:16)."
�There are many shades of "religious beliefs" in this poor storm-tossed sea, but we
must set them all aside as worthless and as the
ways of men, which Scripture says are the
ways of death (Proverbs 16:25) . The Lord
Jesus Christ is the Way, the Truth, and the
Life: no man cometh unto the Father, but
by Him (John 14:6). His death upon the
cross has opened the way for sinners to come
to God, and this is the only way; there is no
other.
We may differ on other points of greater
or less importance, but we must agree on
this main issue, that "the blood of Jesus
Christ His Son cleanseth us from all sin"
(I John 1: 7) , if we expect to anchor in the
haven of eternal peace.
Faith believes what God says, and what
God requires, and receives ,the blessing. The
captain oI a steamer once told me that he
did not know why he pulled his ship from
what seemed to be the right course, when a
heavy fog prevented his sighting an island in.
Lake Superior; but that action saved his vessel from· being wrecked, and I suggested that
God is the Preserver of all men, specially of
those that believe (I Timothy 4: 10). But he
thought he was on the right course, and had
h e remained there, seeking to "reason it out"
with himself and his mates, it would have
r esulted in the loss of the ship and probably
of all its p recious crew.
I t is not a q uestion of "opinion," dear
reader, but what saith the Scriptures? That
Chart is· accurate; it h as never led any astray;
�never caused any to make shipwreck of their
lives, but has brought life, peace, joy and
happiness to countless thousands. Look it
over, read it, believe it, and you'll not be
troubled with the question, "Who is right?"
"He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life: and he that believeth not the
Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God
abideth on him" Gohn 3:36).

��Ivan Allen Criticize
Mr. Jamison Does Not Like
Remarks About Lester Maddox
To Th~ Chattanooga News-Free Press:

t
How shameful it is for a man
of Ivan Allen's position to label
the people o( Georgia as ignorant, pr ejudiced and r eactionary people! - I wonder what
he thought of the Atlanta citi- .
zens who elected him mayor?
I wonder what he thinks of
these free - thinking Americans
who voted for Earry Goldwater
for president?
Is it true that Ivan Allen has




uddenly become God and can






pass judgment on the people of
Georgia for the choice they
made in a free election?
Is Ivan Allen so little to condemn the people of his own state
and yet so big that he can go
on national television and apologize to the nation for th\! "mistake" that his people have
made?
,
Is he a "Moses' called to lead
the people of Georgia into the
promised land? Or does he realize that many God-fearing Georgians believe that this is the
promised land?
Is it possible that Ivan Allen
will lash out at others with
whom he disagrees and call
them " totally unqualified" simply because they do not share
his ideals?
Could his next target be Her-

Is Ivan Allen the epitome of
progress in Georgia, or can the
Atlanta p e o p l e themselves
share some of the credit for
Atlanta's growth? Is it possible
that Atlanta would grow in spite
of him or does Atlanta move_because of him?
Would this great political figure be so courageous as to at- _
tack the dastardly acts of some
of Washington's evildoers? Or
shall he confine himself to defamatory remarks about a local, sincere businessman who
won a fair election on an honest
basis?

Open Letter To Mayor Allen
Dear Sir:
We were never as shocked in our
lives as we were when we read
the cruel, childish, bigot remarks
of the Mayor of the "great" City
of Atlanta in your statement about
the election of Lester Maddox as
Democratic Nominee for Governor .
You know by now that you are
among the minority who think the
nomination of Lester Maddox for
Governor is ' 'deplorable, and as
for the "seal of the great State of
Georgia" being tarnished, such
was the case when you were
elected Mayor of Atlanta . On that
date, the "seal of the City of At.:.
lanta was tarnished" upon your
becoming Mayor by the " colored"
votes that elected you. The White
People of the State of Georgia
have spoken and you refuse to
listen. Your opinion is only one
against millions. You are denying
all Geor gians the cho ice of electing who they want to head the
State. That, in our opinion, is
- dictator sh ip. If you and Martin
Luther King a re asha med to be
called Geor gians, all we can s ay
to you is this , " There is no fence
around the State of Georgia and
you are free to leave whenever
you want to, " and we are sure no
one would be seen crying when you
go, except your Negro supporters. Maybe you can take them with
you ?
We do not appreciate being call ed ignorant! We make up our own
minds , as do the ma jority of the
people , for whom we wish to vote:
You have the s ame r ight, but jus t
because your "Golden Boy " didn't
win, you act like a SELFIS H
..
CHILD. We lost our votes when we
voted for Mayor, too, but we didn •t
act like SELFISH CHILDREN
about it, like you are doing now.
Mr. Allen, if you plan to "go fishing" on November 8th and Lester Maddox wins, which he has a
ver y good chance of doing, you
s hould keep your mouth shut and
leave the choice up to the voters.
This is wh at you s hould have done
this time! We all !mow there is
nothing wor se than a politican
who is lost, except a politican
who sells his soul for a vote. We
realize you are in a vulnerable
position and that if you do not
scream loud enough for the
colored voters to support you in a
bloc type vote, then you know you
are lost as a politician.
YES, MR. ALLEN, we read yo ur
statement to the press, and you
have had your "say." Now, we, as
an independent group of people,
not "backed" by any organization, feel we have the r ight to
our opinions and to our .choice as
to who we want for Governor,
AND WE ARE GOING TO HAVE
IT IN NOVE MBER!!!
MR. ALLEN, WHAT ARE YOU
AFRAID OF ?!!!
Sincerely,
Mr s. G. Gilley

A FEW WOR DS
ON WE LTNER
To the Editor of The Herald:
This Weltner boy, a Representa tive in the House of Repr esenta ti ves from the 3rd Dfstrict of Georgia , and nominee
of the Democratic primary to
succeed him self, has announced
that he will not serr-ve furth er
as the Repres entative from the
3rd District of Georgia.
This action of Weltner's is
ind eed a step in the ri ght dir ection . It would be 'just fine
if every office holder in t h e
United States who holds to the
philosophy such as Weltner's

Upset in Georgia
I
Although Ellis Arnall was the oddson favo1ite to win Georgia's gubernatorial r unoff primary, there were a few
people- not many-who though t that
Lester G. Maddox migh t just possibly
squeeze out a vict ory. No one dreamed,
h owever, that he would win by some 70,000 votes. And there are plenty of people
who are now asking: What does this
mean?
·
I t would be easy t o conclude t hat
Maddox, a segregationist who closed his
Atlanta restaurant rather t han serve
Negroes, is a beneficiary of t he racial
issue. And t o some extent h e doubtless
is, especially against the background of
the recent sensele'S s race flareup in
Atlanta. But this is not the whole story
- not any more so than racial disorders
are the sole explanat ion of this week's
Senate show of displeasure with the
way hospital and school desegregation
guidelines have been handled. Majbrity
Leader Mike Mansfield probably spoke
for most of the Senate members when
he said that the disaffection was not
concerned with desegregation as such,
but resulted from a general feeling that
the Department of Health, Educi);tion
and Welfare had been moving "too fast."
There is no way of knowing to what
extent racial resentment figured in t he
decision of Georgia Democrats t o cast
their ballots for Maddox. But it is a
matter of record that Maddox said little
about the race issue during his campaign. His big rhetorical guns were
reserved for the federal government,
President Johnson, t he Great Society,
liberalism, socialism and communism.
Arnall, on the other hand, was tagged
with l;Jeing a "Washington man." And
during the campaign he could not get
out from under a stat ement, widely
attributed t o him, that "I am a national
Democrat and anyone who doesn't like it
can go to hell."
So, hopefully at least , it looks n ow
as though Georgia will n ot be ripped up
one side and down the other by a governorship campaign keyed t o race in t he
weeks which remain before the November election .
The Republican candidate is Representative Howard Callaway, who was a
Democrat until 1964, when he swung
over and helped carry Georgia for
Senator Goldwater. Callaway is n ot a
racist, and he can be expected t o make
his bid for t he governorship primarily as
an anti-administration man.
When the. runoff voting patterns
have been checked out, Maddox may
conclude, of course, that racial feeling
was the sleeper in his big win. But then,
again, he may not. He may decide to
stick to the formula which carried him
so successfully through the primary.
If this proves to be the case, LBJ
and all his works will be in for a fearful .
pounding on the Georgia hustings
during the next few weeks. But that is
greatly to be preferred to a campaign
t hat could undo the notable progress
which Georgia has made in recent years
in building a better racial climate.

I have been buying st ationery,

that he cannot bear the fact thate
