THANKSGIVING PROCLAMATION

The Thanksgiving Day Proclamation was given by President George Washington in 1789. 

“Whereas it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God; to obey His will; to be grateful for His benefits; and humbly implore Him, His protection and His favor.

And whereas both Houses of Congress have by their joint committee requested me to recommend to the people of the United States a day of public Thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts that many favors of Almighty God; especially by affording them an opportunity to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness.

Now therefore I do recommend and assign Thursday, the 26th day of November next, to be devoted to the people of these states to the service of that Great and Glorious Being – Who is the benevolent Author of all good that was, that is, or that will be.  That we may then all unite in rendering unto Him our sincere and humble thanks for His kind care and protection of the people of this country.”

PSALM 100  “SHOUT FOR JOY TO THE LORD, ALL THE EARTH.  WORSHIP THE LORD WITH GLADNESS;
COME BEFORE HIM WITH JOYFUL SONGS.  KNOW THAT THE LORD IS GOD.  IT IS HE WHO MADE US, AND WE ARE HIS ;  WE ARE HIS PEOPLE, THE SHEEP OF HIS PASTURE.
ENTER HIS GATES WITH THANKSGIVING AND HIS COURTS WITH PRAISE; GIVE THANKS TO HIM AND PRAISE HIS NAME.  FOR THE LORD IS GOOD AND HIS LOVE ENDURES FOREVER; HIS FAITHFULNESS CONTINUES THROUGH ALLL GENERATIONS.”

Give God thanks…
