 "But we have forgotten God.  We have forgotten the gracious hand which preserves us in peace and multiplied and enriched and strengthened us, and we have vainly imagined, in the deceitfulness of our hearts, that all these blessings were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own.  Intoxicated with unbroken success we have become too self sufficient to feel the necessity of redeeming and preserving grace too proud to pray to the God that made us".
Abraham Lincoln Proclamation - A National Day of Fasting, Humiliation and Prayer, March 30, 1863
