Reagan was a deeply religious man, although he was unfairly criticized for rarely going to church while serving as president. Don't forget, Reagan was shot in 1981 and didn't want to place his fellow worshippers at risk.
While at Reagan's birthplace on Sunday, Reagan took his presidential oath of office both times, his left hand was place on Nelle's Bible--it was opened at his favorite verse, 2 Chronicles 7:14:
If My people who are called by My name will humble themselves, and pray and seek My face, and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin and heal their land.Related post:
