The Settlement of America

“I always consider the settlement of America with reverence and wonder, as the opening of a grand design in Providence for the illumination of the slavish part of mankind all over the earth.” – John Adams, 1765

Divine Guidance in the Formation of America

 “No people can be bound to acknowledge and adore the invisible hand, which conducts the Affairs of men more than the People of the United States. Every step by which they have advanced to the character of an independent nation, seems to have been distinguished by some toke of providential agency.” – George Washington, 1789

 The Finger of the Almighty Present in Philadelphia

  "The real wonder is that so many difficulties should have been surmounted , and surmounted with a unanimity almost as unprecedented as it must have been unexpected. It is impossible to any man of pious reflection not to perceive in it [Federal Convention of 1787 which formed the U. S. Constitution] a finger of that Almighty hand which has been so frequently and signally extended to our relief in the critical stages of the revolution." --James Madison, 1788

 Hand of Providence Directed the Drafting of the U.S. Constitution

  "When the great work was done and published, I was struck with amazement. Nothing less than the super-intending Hand of Providence, that so miraculously carried us through the war ... could have brought it about so complete, upon the whole." --Charles Pinckney

The Constitution Was Dictated by Heaven Itself

". . . This ideal also I should think would fire your soul, to exert every nerve to adopt a Constitution, which if every circumstance is taken into view, appears to be dictated by Heaven itself."--Joseph Barrell. December 20, 1787

Miracle at Philadelphia

  "It appears to me, then, little short of a miracle, that the Delegates from so many different States (which States you know are also different from each other), in their manners, circumstances, and prejudices, should unite in forming a system of national Government, so little liable to well founded objectives."--George Washington, 1787.

 Providence Inspired the Writing of the Constitution

  "The hand of Divine Providence was never more plainly visible in the affairs of men that in the framing and adopting of the Constitution." --Andrew Johnson, 1830
