One Heart and One Voice – Thanksgiving

The cry of our purpose of Unified, Nationwide Prayer Dare … that Christians in America, as One Nation Under God … will be of one heart and one mind before our God. Let us be mindful, no matter what we are going through, that we have been mightily blessed in this land of the free, even our poorest. Let us choose to have a wonderful Thanksgiving. Be blessed today.

ONE HEART AND ONE VOICE

You may not know this about the American holiday of Thanksgiving, but we owe it to a writer and editor. Her name was Sarah Buell Hale.

President Abraham Lincoln was the first president to declare Thanksgiving a national holiday at the behest of Hale, a widowed magazine editor and novelist, who had spent 40 years writing to congressmen, lobbying five presidents, and writing countless editorials in her campaign to create an official day of thanks. (Hale was also famous for writing a little poem called “Mary Had a Little Lamb”…)

In 1863, as the Civil War ravished the land, Lincoln issued the proclamation Hale had so persistently pursued. Speaking of America’s blessings, even in its darkest hour, Lincoln wrote,

“No human counsel hath devised, nor hath any mortal hand worked out these things. They are the gracious gifts of the Most High God, who, while dealing with us in anger for our sins, hath nevertheless remembered us in mercy…. It has seemed to me fit and proper that [God’s gifts] should be solemnly, reverently and gratefully acknowledged as with one heart and one voice by the whole American People. I do therefore invite my fellow citizens in every part of the United States, and also those who are at sea and those who are sojourning in foreign lands, to set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next, as a day of Thanksgiving and Praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens.

Amen!
