  Notes: Host's comment: "Often times our history books neglect to tell the whole story of how our nation was founded on faith in Christ. Here in Washington at Valley Forge, George Washington kneels in prayer asking God for strength for his soldiers to make it through the harsh winter. The war was waging but in the midst of it all, Washington stopped for prayer. DiCianni radiantly depicts Washington as the man of faith that he was and the angel behind him that protected him in war. What a magnificent reminder of the beginning moments of our nation!" Artist's note: "In the case of the “Father of Our Country,” as Washington is so often called, his own words give us the absent information critical to understanding his place in history. On December 7, 1796, he concluded his last address to a packed session of Congress with these remarks: “I cannot omit the occasion to…repeat my fervent supplications to the Supreme Ruler of the Universe and Sovereign Arbiter of Nations that his Providential care may still be extended to the United States…” Whatever may be said about Washington, one thing is sure. He knew Who held the future of people and nations in His hands. This painting shows Washington entreating Him at Valley Forge."
