Our nation is at war with its foundations

The other day, I watched the address given at the Inaugural Prayer Breakfast. The keynote speaker was Rabbi Jonathan Cahn. I was pleased to see that he had been chosen, because I have listened to and read his work on the Isaiah 9:10 Scripture. This address was just as important.
