4th of July

Almighty God, we make our earnest prayer that you will keep the United States in your holy protection; that you will incline the hearts of the citizens to cultivate a spirit of subordination and obedience to government, and entertain a brotherly affection and love for one another and for their fellow-citizens of the United States at large.  And, finally, that you would most graciously be pleased to dispose us all to do justice, to love mercy, and to demean ourselves with that charity, humility, and pacific temper of mind which were the characteristics of that Divine Author of our blessed religion and without which we can never be a happy nation.  Grant our supplications, we beseech you, through Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen.

George Washington

I missed the chance to AMEN this earlier.
I'll AMEN it now.

I love to read the words of faith from George Washington. I believe that he was chosen by God for such a time as that.
