Issue 577 – Faith and Prayer History

We think it is incumbent upon this people to humble themselves before God on the account of their sins, for He has been pleased in his righteous judgment to suffer a great calamity to befall us, as the present controversy between Great Britain and the Colonies. Also to implore the Divine blessing upon us, that by the assistance of His grace, we may be able to reform whatever is amiss among us, that so God may be pleased to continue to us the blessings we enjoy, and remove the tokens of His displeasure, by causing harmony and union to be restored between Great Britain and the Colonies.

– John Hancock, Provincial Congress, October 1774
