On this very day (April 30th) in Philadelphia, in 1789, our very first president, George Washington publicly dedicated these United States of America to God. Israel and the United States are the only two nations who, in the formative stages, dedicated their lands to the Holy and Sovereign Creator, which is why these two countries have been protected, and have and continue to prosper.
This country was founded on God, and our founding fathers were great men of God. Our Sovereign Creator is written into our constitution. Stop cowering to those who would try to say otherwise, as the very future of our Nation depends on our covenant with God. We are either One Nation Under God, or we will be One Nation no more.
Do you seriously think these very naysayers are going to protect you? Only God Himself has and can continue to protect this great Nation. Take heed, citizens of this country, for God will not be mocked. God bless these United States, as we, as a nation, continue to bless God. It is God Almighty alone Who makes and keeps this nation great.
Read the public covenant-making words of our first president of this great nation:
“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 of America at large. 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 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.” – President George Washington April 30th, 1789
Let the words of our first president be your prayer and declaration this day.
If you have never received Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Savior, I encourage you to do it today, right now, by saying this prayer out loud: “Jesus, forgive me for my sins. I am sorry. I truly desire to be saved and reconciled back to God, my Father, through You. I receive Your sinless Blood as payment in full for my sins—past, present, and future. I now call You my Lord and Savior, and invite You to live within my heart, and to permanently live within me. I make You Lord over me and over my life from this moment on. Amen.” Congratulations! You are now a child of God, made whole and made new, by the Blood of Jesus Christ!
