There have been many times divine intervention has played a part in the history of our country.
During the American Revolution, George Washington attested to it many times. In the early part of the war, a sudden and unexpected wind and fog kept the British ships from entering New York harbor at a critical time. If they had been able to land, they would have surely defeated our young inexperienced army.
General Washington prayed long and often and those prayers brought help in the nick of time many times over.
There were several times General Washington was shot at point blank and the bullets missed their target, several times he returned from battle untouched with bullet holes in his jacket.
Even the final battle at Yorktown, a strong wind kept the British Fleet from arriving in port with reinforcements.
In the war of 1812, a sudden storm provided rain which in turn prevented our government buildings from being completely destroyed by fire.
Likewise, there are stories from the Civil War and World War 2 of similar circumstances when all hope seemed to be lost when a sudden turn of events prevented sure defeat and turned it into victory.
Likewise, in the 2016 election, it seemed as if Hillary was cruising to a sure win, when suddenly, the tide turned and she was denied her victory. Although she won the popular vote, because of voters voting in strategically placed precincts, Trump was able to snatch victory out of the jaws of defeat.
Just like General Washington, many people were praying for a major change in Washington, to continue down the present course would have meant sure destruction of our republic.
In today’s world the entitlement generations outnumber the working class, the only way for the election to be won by the conservatives was through the electoral college.
Did God once again intervene because of the prayers of well meaning people and once again save our great nation by prompting large numbers of voters in the correct precincts to go vote, and did he inspire Trump to realize the only way he could win was to campaign in the states where he could garner enough votes to win?
