upon the earth."
God placed mankind in charge of the earth, as His manager of it.

Text and MP3 Audio Reading

(Read while listening)
[New York, 3 October 1789]
By the President of the United States of America. a Proclamation.

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

implore his protection and favor--and whereas both Houses of Congress have
by their joint Committee requested me "to recommend to the People of the

States a day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by
acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God
especially by

affording them an opportunity peaceably 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 by the People of these States to the service of that
great and

glorious Being, who is the beneficent Author of all the good that was,
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
this Country previous to their becoming a Nation--for the signal and

mercies, and the favorable interpositions of his Providence which we
experienced in the tranquillity, union, and plenty, which we have since

the peaceable and rational manner, in which we have been enabled to
establish constitutions of government for our safety and happiness, and
particularly the

national One now lately instituted--for the civil and religious liberty
which we are blessed; and the means we have of acquiring and diffusing

knowledge; and in general for all the great and various favors which he
been pleased to confer upon us.

and also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and
supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech him to
pardon our

national and other transgressions--to enable us all, whether in public or
private stations, to perform our several and relative duties properly and

punctually--to render our national government a blessing to all the
by constantly being a Government of wise, just, and constitutional laws,

discreetly and faithfully executed and obeyed--to protect and guide all
Sovereigns and Nations (especially such as have shewn kindness onto us)
to bless

them with good government, peace, and concord--To promote the knowledge
practice of true religion and virtue, and the encrease of science among

us--and generally to grant unto all Mankind such a degree of temporal
prosperity as he alone knows to be best.

Given under my hand at the City of New-York the third day of October in
year of our Lord 1789.

Go: Washington

My Prayer 4 You
"To Help Us See Another's Point Of View" - with MP3 Audio Reading

Reading by Sweet-Talk Girl, Free, Public Domain.

NOTE: When you read this prayer, try to imagine hearing my voice as I
speak it to you. In this way, the prayer is reactivated, and it
the same as if I were actually praying for you at that moment.
(Just like television prayers are reactivated when you watch
them, although the videotape may have been shot years before.)

"To Help Us See Another's Point Of View"

Sometimes we are so wrapped up in ourselves,
So worried with our own important lives,
That we do not take time to see the world,
Through someone else's eyes, the way he sees.
The Lord wants us to care for everyone,
To love our neighbor as we love ourselves,
But if we are to do as He commands,
We need to see our neighbor's point of view,
And give it the importance it deserves.
* * *

I pray the Lord will help us take the time,
And give to us the empathy we need,
In order that we may begin to see,
The world through eyes of others than ourselves.
And once we understand his point of view,
I pray the Lord will help us more to love,
Our neighbor as we surely love ourselves.
In Jesus' holy name I pray, Amen.
