J. D. Lankford, a retired Army sergeant first class was captured by the Germans during the Battle of the Bulge, and held prisoner until his unit was liberated by U.S. troops led by General George Patton.  Speaking to a military group at Robins Air Force Base in George, he stated, “Prayer is the sole reason for my survival.  It’s the power of prayer.  Don’t tell me it doesn’t work.  I’m here.  It’s the strongest power you will ever have.”  Lankford survived by eating bugs and worms, coming out of the POW camp weighing 93 pounds.  “Freedom doesn’t come free,” he declared.  “Ask God’s direction.  Our nation is built on trust in God.  So trust Him and go vote.”
