Happy Thanksgiving

As I, along with my family, give thanks to God for His many blessings, I thank God for all of you who read our comments, support Faith and Freedom, and stand with us in the work we do.

We are truly grateful for you. Your words encourage us. Your financial support allows us to stay in the battle. Your prayers sustain us.

I am also grateful for the Christian heritage of this exceptional nation. The following proclamation is a snapshot of the faith, courage and wisdom that formed America.

First National Thanksgiving 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 humbly to implore His protection and favor; Whereas, both the 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 the many and 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 next, to be devoted by the people of the states to the service of that great and glorious being, who is the beneficent Author of all the 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.

George Washington, 1779.
