Prayer for His Country
(Editor's Note: This article was reprinted from an undocumented brochure.)
George Washington worshiped at Pohick Church in Truro Parish, where
he served as a vestryman and warden before the Revolutionary War.
Adapted from Washington's "Circular to the States" written from headquarters as Commander-in-Chief at Newburgh, New York, on June 8, 1783. This circular was directed to the Governors and States of the new nation; his reference to them has been replaced by the words "the United States." Otherwise the words and spelling are those of General Washington.
