.Prayer. During the WWII bombing, people in London were urged to pray at 9:00 pm every night. Miracles happened. One night the powerful German airforce began a blitzkreig, and then unexpectedly retreated at 9:00 pm. The tiny, weak British airforce captured a German pilot who explained that the Germans fled because they could not have possibly prevailed against the overwhelming British air power. Miracles still happen. We urge all mothers, advocates, and all who care about children to pray at 9:00 pm your time every night.
