America Dedicated to God
On April 30th, 1789, America had a Constitution and a newly formed government. On that day, the government, the House, and the Senate gathered for the Inauguration of our first president, George Washington. In his Inauguration Address, Washington gave a prophetic warning: “We ought to be no less persuaded that the propitious smiles of heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and the right which heaven itself has ordained.” Washington’s warning was, if we would begin to depart from God, He would remove His blessings, His prosperity and His protection from our nation.

After Washington’s address, the government, the House, the Senate, and America’s first president traveled on foot to Saint Paul’s Chapel. No one knows exactly what was said inside but we do know the entire government was on their knees praying and consecrating this nation to God. In the chapel there is also a plaque above Washington’s pew with the words “Almighty God, we make our earnest prayer that you will keep the United States in Holy protection.” Saint Paul’s Chapel is located at the corner of Ground Zero and is the spiritual birthplace of America.

America’s first Presidential Inauguration – that of President George Washington – incorporated seven specific religious activities, including[1] the use of the Bible to administer the oath;[2] affirming the religious nature of the oath by the adding the prayer “So help me God!” to the oath;[3] inaugural prayers offered by the president;[4] religious content in the inaugural address;[5] civil leaders calling the people to prayer or acknowledgement of God;[6] inaugural worship services attended en masse by Congress as an official part of congressional activities;[7] and clergy-led inaugural prayers.[8]

I do live in Mission, B.C. which is about 50 miles east of Vancouver. I am in what they call the Fraser Valley and I am about 20 minutes from the Sumas border............Wendy

I hope you do post some of those pictures. You live in western Canada. Wow, I am sure that is very beautiful with the mountain range.

What a great story about 9-11. The 17th anniversary is tomorrow. I wish I could get down to the Sumas border to the monument that we put up, but unfortunately, have a previous engagement. Between Sumas, WA and us in the Fraser Valley, we had a monument erected way less than a year from the disaster. We even had a Battalion Chief and his wife up here. I really loved being part of the project. My late hubby designed and made the visitor book for down there. I should try to post some pictures..............Wendy

Thank you for your comment Wendy. This little Chapel stands in New York City. It once owned the land where the Twin Towers stood. It survived 9-11, for the Sycamore Tree that was beside the Chapel took the blast and saved the Chapel.

What a beautiful chapel, and I am happy it is being preserved. So many old buildings are just torn down these days.............Wendy
