George Washington’s Thanksgiving Proclamation

Dear Friends and Family:

To receive a fresh dose of inspiration, take a look at George Washington’s Thanksgiving Proclamation. Now we can begin to realize just to what depths that these United States have fallen. It is God who gives us our sustenance. It is God who for so many years has rendered mercy for a sometime stiff-necked people. And because where the Lord is, there is liberty:

“Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.” II Corinthians 3:17

Please prayerfully consider what God has done for you, your family, your community and our nation. Please pray for those that have no one and nowhere to go, and for those who live in institutions have no one who will come to see them on America’s holidays. Give special thanks to God and to our servicemen and servicewomen who have protected our country since its inception. And prayerfully consider George Washington’s Thanksgiving Proclamation of October 3, 1789 as you literally give thanks.

Blessings on your day,


Mark Peterson, Ph.D.
