My favorite source on this is Marshall's "The Light and the Glory." which details the travails and successes in the colonization of the America's, with a continuing theme of recounting events and coincidences virtually unexplainable other than the invisible hand of God working on the nation's behalf.  For example,  the sudden onset of heavy fog just as Washington started to cross the Delaware River.
Time after time, the colonists, no matter where they were, from St. Augustine, Jamestown, to Plymouth and Salem, followed the pattern of falling into drunkenness and debauchery, with one colony after another either failing or being on the verge of failure.  Again and again,  the monarchs and the church would be forced to send in strong leaders, such as the Puritan Priest Mather or the strict  Governor John Quincy, to, pardon the impolite,  kick ass and take names.  Part of that process was to enforce the religious covenant. Knock off the booze, go to your own home at nightfall, and get back to work. First and foremost, your attendance on Sunday mornings is no longer optional.  Wonder of wonders, when the covenants were enforced, the jurisdictions prospered.  :biggrin:

Not incidentally, the principle is literally between every line of the Declaration of Independence, the United States Constitution, and the Bill of Rights.

I have an old book (booklet really), that I've had since I was a teenager. It's called, We Have a Guardian. It's not about God's intervention in America, but Britain in WWII. In one of the stories, a German pilot captured was asked why  they all turned and fled when they greatly out numbered the british in one battle? The pilot was shocked. He said, what do you mean?  There were thousands of planes headed our way. We didn't stand a chance! God was with us then. It was acknowledged.

Today, I really fear a major war. God is not with us these days, because we aren't with Him!

A few of us here see it very clearly.
