The article “Patton’s Talk With God” by Lt. Colonel Jack Widmer appeared in the December 1947 issue of True Magazine. On the anniversary of D-Day, this is a great example of the fighting spirit of the men and women who served in the face of true evil, the power of prayer, and how God answers all prayers–be the answer “yes”, “no”, “wait a little bit”, or “watch this”, as it was at Bastogne. God accepts all prayer, through His Son–even Patton’s unusually blunt and perhaps irreverent offering. He knows the contents of our hearts, and in answering prayer, however that prayer is made, God’s ultimate plan is better than even we could ask for.
