Thomas Hutchinson, an early historian, wrote that God brought a vine into the wilderness of New England and caused it to take root, and it filled the land.
Colossians 2:6-8 (ESV)
Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk in him, rooted and built up in him and established in the faith, just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving.
See to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human tradition, according to the elemental spirits of the world, and not according to Christ.
Our Father in heaven,
We give You thanks for the innumerable blessings You have bestowed upon our land. We thank You for Your providence and protection. We are a Christian nation, and no one can take away our history.
Our nation is at a crossroads. Guard us from vain philosophy and empty deceit in this election. We stand in the name of Christ and loose the angels that war against the elemental spirits of the world, particularly in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Amen.
