George Washington's Prayer for his Country
Taken from his "Circular Letter Addressed to the Governors of all the States on the Disbanding of the Army, June 14, 1783"
I now make it my earnest prayer that God would have you, and the State over which you preside,
in his holy protection; that he would incline the hearts of the citizens to cultivate a spirit of subordination
and obedience to government, to entertain a brotherly affection and love for one another, for their fellow-citizens
of the United States at large, and particularly for brethren who have served in the field; and finally that he
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 the Divine Author of our blessed religion,
and without an humble imitation of whose example in these things, we can never hope to be a happy nation.
Remembering Our Past…
By honoring those who served or assisted the Colonies during the Revolutionary War.
