- The Bible!
- Isaac Watts Hymnal ‘Psalms, Hymns and Spiritual Songs,’ (every verse affirming Biblical truth and values)!”

“(March 16, 1776), as recorded in the Journals of Congress, passed without dissent a resolution presented by General William Livingston declaring May 17, 1776, [just seven weeks before the Declaration was signed] as being a National Day of Humiliation, Fasting and Prayer:
“The Congress … desirous … to have people of all ranks and degrees duly impressed with a solemn sense of God’s superintending providence, and of their duty, devoutly to rely… on his aid and direction…
“We do earnestly recommend Friday, the 17th day of May  be observed by the colonies as a day of humiliation, fasting, and prayer; that we may, with united hearts, confess and bewail our manifold sins and transgressions, and, by sincere repentance and amendment of life, appease God’s righteous displeasure, and, through the merits and mediation of Jesus Christ, obtain this pardon and forgiveness.”
