"...to see men without clothes to cover their nakedness, without blankets to lay on, without shoes, by which their Marches might be traced by the blood from their feet...marching through frost and snow...and submitting to it all without a murmur, is a mark of patience and obedience, which in my opinion can scarce be parelleled."

George Washington: 1778 about the Continental Army

Prayer for the United States of America

Second Inaugural Prayer: George Washington

Almighty God; we make our earnest prayer that Thou wilt keep the United States in Thy holy protection...that Thou wilt incline the hearts of the citizens to cultivate a spirit of subordination and obedience to government...and, finally, that Thou wilt 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 a humble imitation of whose example in these things we can never hope to be a happy nation. Grant our supplication we beseech Thee, through Jesus Christ our Lord, Amen.
