Elias Boudinot on the Christianity of America

“Let us enter on this important business under the idea that we are Christians on whom the eyes of the world are now turned. . . . We can only depend on the all powerful influence of the Spirit of God, Whose Divine aid and assistance it becomes us as a Christian people most devoutly to implore. Therefore I move that some minister of the Gospel be requested to attend this Congress every morning . . . in order to open the meeting with prayer.” —Elias Boudinot, President of the Continental Congress, signer of the peace treaty to end the American war for independence, first attorney admitted to the U.S. Supreme Court Bar, framer of the Bill of Rights, Director of the U.S. Mint
