Peter Lillback at the National Prayer Breakfast
On the birthday of General George Washington, Dr. Peter Lillback had the opportunity to encourage and equip some of our nation’s military cadets at the United States Military Academy at West Point, New York. The Academy’s mission statement is to educate, train and inspire cadets so that each graduate is a commissioned leader of character prepared for a career of professional excellence and service to the nation as an officer in the United States Army.
Dr. Lillback was the keynote speaker at the National Prayer Breakfast observance that centered on the life of General George Washington. This exposition by Dr. Lillback expounded upon the life and service of America’s Senior Officer, illustrating the guiding light of divine providence and faith he so often referred to in his writings. This recall of Washington’s perception of these principles and its application for them was not lost on these cadets. Dr. Lillback’s academic precision and pastoral insights laid a solid foundation for these future officers, many who will soon join the Army’s active component who are engaged in combat operations around the world. It was indeed a privilege for Dr. Lillback to give back even just a little to these modern day heroes who have committed their lives to the service of this nation.
