    Description

    Apollo 16 Lunar Module Flown Microfilm Prayer from Nassau Baptist Church, approximately 2" x 2.5" and inserted into photo corners on an attractive 8.5" x 11" signed certificate. This was housed in the Personal Preference Kit of Charles M. Duke, Jr., during the April 16-27, 1972, mission. This microfilm frame was aboard the Lunar Module Orion for three days while Duke and fellow crew member John W. Young explored the Descartes Highlands on the Moon. It was presented to Duke by Apollo 15 astronaut Jim Irwin, whose fellow church members had formed a prayer covenant devoted to the safety of the mission. Included on the microfilm is a verse, Psalms 121:8, which reads "The Lord shall preserve thy going out and thy coming in from this time forth and even for evermore." From the collection of Charles M. Duke, Jr., who has included a signed Letter of Certification verifying its provenance.
