When Alice C. Hamilton was sixty-five and retired, she heard the Lord say to her one day, "You can do it!" Alice knew exactly what He was saying because a little while before He had dropped a revolutionary idea into her spirit. The idea? Visit every state capitol in the country and pray there, anoint it with oil and plead the blood of Jesus over it. It was a daunting idea for a lady her age but she gladly accepted the challenge. Right away she began to make plans: She visited the library to find every state capitol. She dipped into her life savings to finance the trip. She contacted friends and relatives in various states to let them know of her mission. Then in the dead of winter in 1996, she took off. Six months later, with five lengthy breaks in between, she had completed the task.
