Lincoln Quotations - Tuesday

Lincoln, “Intoxicated with unbroken success, we have become too self-sufficient to feel the necessity of redeeming and preserving graces, too proud to pay to the God that made us: It behooves us then, to humble ourselves before the offended Power, to confess our national sins, and to pray for clemency and forgiveness on Thursday 30th of April, 1863, as a day of national humiliation, fasting and prayer.”
