First Prayer of the First Continental Congress, Part I

O! Lord, our heavenly father, King of Kings and Lord of lords: who dost from thy throne behold all the dwellers upon earth and reignest with power supreme & uncontrouled over all kingdoms, empires and governments, look down in mercy, we beseech thee, upon these our American states who have fled to thee from the rod of the oppressor and thrown themselves upon thy gracious protection, desiring henceforth to be dependent only on thee.

--Reverend Mr. Jacob Duché

(To be continued next Sunday).

Many thanks to Hercules Mulligan at Meet the Founding Fathers for posting this treasure.
