George Washington:

The Greatest Man Who Ever Lived?'

Greatest Christian Outside the Biblical Heroes?

George Washington: What did he Pray For?

Please note how often George Washington claims:

    >> Earnest Prayers;

    >> Fervent Prayers;

Was he serious in his Prayers to God? Here is what he says:

    "Went to church and fasted all day."

    [SOURCE: George Washington - Diary Entry, June 1, 1774].

We'll start with "Perhaps His Greatest Prayer!" as to redemption, Doctrine, expression of personal sin, degree of confession and remorse, etc.;

"Perhaps His Greatest Prayer!"

    Most Glorious God, in Jesus Christ, my merciful and loving Father;

    I acknowledge and confess my guilt in the weak and imperfect performance of the duties of this day. I have called on Thee for pardon and forgiveness of my sins, but so coldly and carelessly that my prayers are become my sin, and they stand in need of pardon.

    I have sinned against heaven and before Thee in thought, word, and deed. I have contemned Thy majesty and holy laws. I have likewise sinned by omitting what I ought to have done and committing what I ought not.

    I have rebelled against the light, despising Thy mercies and judgment, and broken my vows and promise. I have neglected the better things. My iniquities are multiplied and my sins are very great.

    I confess them, O Lord, with shame and sorrow, detestation and loathing and desire to be vile in my own eyes as I have rendered myself vile in Thine.

    I humbly beseech Thee to be merciful to me in the free pardon of my sins for the sake of Thy dear Son and only Savior Jesus Christ who came to call not the righteous, but sinners to repentance.

    Thou gavest Thy Son to die for me.

    Make me to know what is acceptable in Thy sight, and therein to delight, open the eyes of my understanding, and help me thoroughly to examine myself concerning my knowledge, faith, and repentance, increase my faith,

    and direct me to the true object, Jesus Christ the Way, the Truth, and the Life."

    [SOURCE: George Washington - Authentic handwritten manuscript book, April 23, 1752]/

    SOURCE: http://www.revolutionary-war-and-beyond.com/george-washington-quotes-1.html ].


Or was this his greatest prayer?

    "...that He would grant to His Church the plentiful effusions of Divine Grace,

    and pour out His Holy Spirit on all Ministers of The Gospel;

    that He would Bless and Prosper the means of education, and spread The Light of Christian Knowledge through the remotest corners of the Earth;

    that 'He would Smile upon the Labours of His People' and cause the Earth to bring forth her fruits in abundance; that we may with gratitude and gladness enjoy them;

    that He would take into His Holy Protection...and render him *Signally Great',...that He would in mercy look down upon us, pardon our sins and receive us into his favor,

    and finally, that He would establish the independence of these United States upon the basis of religion .. and virtue..."

    (A strict observance to be paid by the Army to this proclamation and the Chaplains are to prepare and deliver discourses suitable to it).

    [SOURCE: George Washington General Orders, 11/27/1779, The Writings of George Washington, 17:189-190)].

Note what George Washington claims in the following letter, that 'He ALWAYS ENCOURAGED & PROMOTED RELIGION and esteemed Religious Liberties EQUAL to Civil Liberties!'

NOTE his closing, that he professes FERVENT PRAYER!!!

    "CONVINCED, that our RELIGIOUS LIBERTIES were as essential as our Civil, my ENDEAVORS have NEVER been WANTING (lacking) to ENCOURAGE and PROMOTE the one, while I have been contending for the other (fighting for the physical, War-bought freedoms),

    and I am highly flattered by finding that my efforts have met the approbation (appreciation) of so respectable a body.

    In return for your kind concern for my temporal and eternal happiness, permit me to assure you that my wishes are reciprocal; and that you may be enabled to hand down your Religion pure and undefiled to a Posterity worthy of their Ancestors.

    Is the FERVENT PRAYER of Gentn. Yrs. &c.

All Officers, and Soldiers, are strictly enjoined to pay all due reverence, and attention on that day, to the Sacred Duties due to 'The Lord of Hosts', for 'His Mercies' already received,

and for those blessings, which Our Holiness and Uprightness of life can alone encourage us to hope through His Mercy to obtain."

"Rev. Dear Sir, the Sermon on the duty of civil obedience as required in Scripture, which you had the goodness to send me, came safe a Post or two ago; and for which I pray you to accept my grateful acknowledgements.

The hurry in which it found me engaged, in a matter that pressed, has not allowed me time to give it a perusal yet; but I anticipate the pleasure of the edification I shall find when it is in my power to do it.

With every respectful wish, in which Mrs. Washington united, for yourself and the young ladies of your family, I am with great esteem and regard, Dear Sir, your most obedient and humble servant,

In retireing [sic] from the field of Contest to the sweets of private life, I claim no merit, but if in that retirement my most earnest wishes and prayers can be of any avail, nothing will exceed the prosperity of our common Country, and the temporal and spiritual felicity of those who are represented in your Address.

And if my humble exertions have been made in any degree subservient to the execution of the divine purposes, a contemplation of the benediction of Heaven on our righteous Cause, the approbation of my virtuous Countrymen, and the testimony of my own Conscience, will be a sufficient reward and augment my felicity beyond anything which the world can bestow.

The establishment of Civil and Religious Liberty was the Motive which induced me to the Field; the object is attained, and it now remains to be my earnest wish and prayer, that the Citizens of the United States would make a wise and virtuous use of the blessings placed before them;
