On June 28, 1787, Dr. Benjamin Franklin rose on the floor of the Constitutional Convention and addressed himself to “Mr. President”—the chairman of the Convention, George Washington. For nearly a month, delegates from the thirteen American states had made little progress in developing a form of national government. Mr. Franklin had been a member of the Continental Congress and called to mind the fact that Congress had started each session by seeking the guidance of the Lord in their deliberations during the War of Independence. Mr. Franklin attributed the rancor in the Constitution Convention to the fact the members had failed to earnestly seek God’s guidance. He believed greater progress would be made in their efforts if they began each session by seeking divine guidance.

Mr. Franklin’s request for prayer at the Constitutional Convention is taken from James Madison’s records of the Convention and is tastefully emblazoned upon this print with a cameo of Franklin. This work of art is among America’s heritage hallmarks and would make a beautiful addition to your home, church, business, or association center. Order your print today!
