Albrecht Durer - Praying Hands - the story behind the image - One day, long ago, to pay homage to Albert for all that he had sacrificed, Albrecht Durer painstakingly drew his brother’s abused hands with palms together and thin fingers stretched skyward. He called his powerful drawing simply “Hands,” but the entire world almost immediately opened their hearts to his great masterpiece and renamed his tribute of love “The Praying Hands.”
Dearest Heavenly Father, I come before You on behalf of the people of America, Lord I ask that You open hearts all across this great Country that was founded on, and built on You, I ask that You guide Americans as they cast their vote in the elections, that they choose candidates that honor You and Your Word, Thankyou Lord, in Jesus' Precious Holy Name I pray, Amen
