Some Spiritual Leadership from General George S. Patton, Jr.

Here is a timeless quote from one of the greatest Generals in history, General George S. Patton, Jr.:

General George S. Patton Jr., U.S. Army General, 1940s Premium Poster“Urge all of your men to pray, not alone in church, but everywhere.  Pray when driving.  Pray when fighting.  Pray alone.  Pray with others, Pray by night and pray by day.  Pray for the cessation of immoderate rains, for good weather for battle.  Pray for the defeat of our wicked enemy whose banner is injustice and whose good is oppression.  Pray for victory.  Pray for our Army, and pray for peace.  We must march together, all out for God.”

George S. Patton, Jr.

  1. This is a gem. I would like to post this on my blog if that’s agreeable to you.


    Love It LOVE IT!


  3. I’m not much of a praying person, even in the foxhole so to speak, but this certainly captures the essence of a great general officer. Thanks of keeping a true leader alive, front and center.

    Thank you for the post. Excellent! Especially, in the field of battle this is liberating.

    Part of a warrior’s preparation for war is to maintain, not only the physical and mental, but also the spiritual fitness. Any great warrior will attest to how important this is.

    Many studies, and especially of our comrades in Vietnam who endured tremendous pain, attest that their spiritual convictions helped them overcome horrendous adversity. Hooah! Always motivated, Jose LugoSantiago
