From the Chaplain


Bill Thompson – Chaplin

We know February has Valentine’s Day. Every store I’ve been in lately has reminders not to forget that day. On the other hand, wouldn’t it be great to be thoroughly reminded that February also has Presidents Day which reminds us of two past

presidents. Why not pray with me a prayer attributed to George Washington: “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”

In your own way, I encourage you to pray for our nation and its leadership.
