    George H. W. Bush on the Power of Prayer Autograph manuscript (unsigned) as Vice President, 11" x 8.5", written on the verso of a desk calendar bearing Mr. Bush's schedule for June, 1983 -- a draft for public remarks concerning the power of prayer. He writes in full (with some corrections): "prayer can comfort & give strength [words crossed out] We had a child very ill with cancer. In our ward most of the kids wouldn't make it. My Barbara adored the parents of a sick little guy named Joe how Joe was doing. the mother said 'Remember what the Lord said -- Let the little children that suffer come to me. Well Joe had a bad day but our prayers will be answered. It matters not that the words were mixed up (Let the children vs. suffer the children what counts was her faith and belief in prayer." Very bright and clean and in excellent condition. Tastefully matted with a photo of the entire Bush family. Accompanied by COA from PSA/DNA.
