Historical Fact regarding God and His United States of America

On October 3, 1789, one week after Congress approved the Bill of Rights, President George Washington recognized “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,” and therefore declared a national “day of public thanksgiving and prayer to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many signal favors of Almighty God especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness.” (www.morallaw.org, “America Acknowledges God”) emphasis added
