Written by the Finger of God, the Ten Commandments.
Kings of Israel2 Kings Chapter 17 verse 34-41 “Unto this day they do after the former matters. They fear not the Lord, neither do they walk after the statutes or ordinances (laws) which the Lord commanded the children of Jacob whom He named Israel, with whom the Lord made a covenant and charged them saying, ye shall not fear other gods nor bow yourselves to them, nor serve them. nor sacrifice to them! Serve the Lord who brought you up out of Egypt with great power and a stretched out arm. Him shall ye fear and Him shall ye worship and to Him shall ye do sacrifice.
The statutes and ordinances and law and commandment which He wrote for you ye shall observe to do forevermore! Ye shall not fear other gods! The covenant I have made with you ye shall not forget. Do not fear other gods but the Lord your God shall ye fear and He shall deliver you out of the hand of your enemies. Howbeit they did not hearken but they did after their former manner. So these nations served their graven images, both their children and their children’s children, as did their fathers, so do they unto this day! “

From George Washington’s Journal recopied by Steven Reese, Shelter Rock Ministries...”Battle Cry!”
Almighty God and most merciful Father who did command the children of Israel to offer a daily sacrifice of praise to Thee that they might glorify Thee for Thy protection both night and day. Receive, O Lord, my morning sacrifice I offer to Thee. I yield Thee my humble and hearty thanks that thou hast preserved me from the danger of the nights past and brought me to the light of this day and the comforts thereof.
A day which is consecrated to Thine own service and for Thine own honor. Let my heart be so affected with the glory and majesty of it that I may not do my own works but wait on Thee and discharge these weighty duties required of me. Since Thou art a God of pure eyes and will be sanctified in all who draw near to Thee, who does not regard the sacrifice of fools, nor hear sinners who tread in Thy courts, pardon, I beseech Thee, my sins.
Remove them far from Thy presence, as far as from the east to the west and accept of me for Thy merits of Thy Son Jesus Christ that when I come into Thy temple and compass Thine altar my prayer may come before Thee as incense and as You hear me calling upon You in my prayer, so give me grace to hear Thee calling upon me in Thy Word that it may be wisdom, righteousness, reconciliation and peace to the saving of the soul in the day of the Lord Jesus.
Grant that I may hear it with reverence, receive it with meekness and mingle it with faith that it may accomplish in me, Gracious God, the good work for which Thou hast sent it. Bless my family, kindred, friends and Country. Be our God and guide for this day and forever.
For His sake who lay down in the grave and rose again for us. Jesus Christ, our Lord.
