Quick Overview

During one of the darkest times in this nation's history, the United States Senate passed a resolution asking President Abraham Lincoln to appoint a day of national prayer and fasting. The nation was in the middle of a great Civil War and the South seemed to have the upper hand. The nation's very existence was in jeopardy. At this time, President Abraham Lincoln issued proclamation on March 30, 1863 designating the day as a national day of humiliation, prayer and fasting. This is an original broadside document entitled "A PRAYER" that was distributed in 1863 to promote Lincoln's proclamation. "A prayer to be said by all good citizens on the day of Fasting & Prayer ordered by Abraham Lincoln. The Prayer....Amen." Exquisite gift item, ready for display.

Historical Notes

The proclamation: Whereas it is fit and becoming in all people at all times to acknowledge and revere the supreme government of God, to bow in humble submission to His chastisements, to confess and deplore their sins and transgressions in the full conviction that the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom, and to pray with all fervency and contrition for the pardon of their past offenses and for a blessing upon their present and prospective action; and Whereas when our own beloved country, once, by the blessing of God, united, prosperous, and happy, is now afflicted with faction and civil war, it is peculiarly fit for us to recognize the hand of God in this terrible visitation, and in sorrowful remembrance of our own faults and crimes as a nation and as individuals to humble ourselves before Him and to pray for His mercy—to pray that we may be spared further punishment, though most justly deserved; that our arms may be blessed and made effectual for the reestablishment of law, order, and peace throughout the wide extent of our country; and that the inestimable boon of civil and religious liberty, earned under His guidance and blessing by the labors and sufferings of our fathers, may be restored in all its original excellence: Therefore I, Abraham Lincoln, President of the United States, do appoint the last Thursday in September next as a day of humiliation, prayer, and fasting for all the people of the nation. And I do earnestly recommend to all the people, and especially to all ministers and teachers of religion of all denominations and to all heads of families, to observe and keep that day according to their several creeds and modes of worship in all humility and with all religious solemnity, to the end that the united prayer of the nation may ascend to the Throne of Grace and bring down plentiful blessings upon our country.
