This Day in History:  February 6th, 1756 British National Day of Prayer

This Day in History:  February 6th, 1756 the King of England called the nation to a day of “solemn prayer and fasting” because of the threatened invasion by the French. “The fast day was a glorious day, such as London has scarcely seen since the restoration. Every church in the city was more than full, and a solemn seriousness sat on every face. Surely God heareth prayer, and there will yet be a lengthening of our tranquility.” ~ John Wesley’s journal.  BTW:  The French did not invade.
