Here are some quotes from the founding fathers. May our prayers for the leaders of this great nation heal our land.
Abraham Lincoln: “With malice toward none, with charity for all, with firmness in the right as God gives us to see the right, let us finish the work we are in…to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and a lasting peace among ourselves and with all nations.”
Thomas Jefferson: “Almighty God, Who has given us the good land for or heritage; We humbly beseech Thee that we may always prove ourselves a people mindful of Thy favor and glad to do Thy will.”
George Washington: “Preserve and defend our rulers I church and state. Bless the people of this land, be a father to the fatherless, a comforter to the comfortless, a deliverer to the captives, and a physician to the sick. Let thy blessings guide this day and forever through Jesus Christ.”
Samuel Adams, “Let divines and philosophers, statesmen and patriots, unite their endeavors to renovate the age by impressing the minds of men with the importance of educating their little boys and girls, inculcating in the minds of youth the fear and love of the Deity.”
Patrick Henry, “It cannot be emphasized too clearly and too often that this nation was founded, not by religionists, but by Christians; not on religion, but on the gospel of Jesus Christ. For this very reason, people of other faiths have been afforded asylum, prosperity, and freedom of worship here.”
“If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14
