Washington’s Prayer for the Nation
To the State Governors June 8, 1783

  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 entertain a brotherly affection and love for one
another and for their fellow citizens of the United States
at large.
  And finally that thou wilt most graciously be pleased
to dispose us all to do justice, to love mercy, and to de-
mean ourselves with 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.
  Grant our supplications, we beseech Thee, through
Jesus Christ our Lord.  Amen. 

(Written at Newburg, June 8, 1783, and sent to the Governors of all the States.)
