AN INVOCATION BY THE REVEREND T.F. GULLIXON OF MINOT, N. D. AT VERENDRYE, JULY 17, 1925

¶ In the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost. Eternal and all-seeing God, beneath whose mighty hand unfolds the history of nations and of peoples, we acknowledge Thee and praise Thy Holy name. ¶The wilderness trail of the explorer and the wagon train of the pioneer were not hid fromThy sight. Thou hast sustained the woodsman hewing for his cabin and his brother breaking at the prairie's sod. Thou hast heard the evening song of the host of pioneer mothers in frontier homes of poverty lulling their babes to sleep, and the prayers of little children awed by the vastness of virgin forest and plain. Thou hast established the work of their hands. ¶The faithfulness of one generation Thou hast requited unto the next, and lo, we stand in this latest year rich in our heritage. ¶Oh, God, we thank Thee for America! For all who have served Thee in giving to us this new "promised land;" for those in each generation and every honorable field who fearlessly have pushed forward their endeavors; for the explorers; for the missionaries who with the gospel of the Cross pushed on and witnessed and died; for builders and for leaders; for all the graves of good men and women between here and Plymouth Rock; for the influence of noble lives wrought into the very fabric of our national life. ¶Gracious Father sustain us who have so rich a heritage. Our many transgressions in mercy forgive. Pride and wild pagan tongues, remember them not in the day of reckoning. In our thinking and our doing be the unfolding of that righteousness which exalts both nation. In prosperity save us from fatness of soul and in riches from the temptations thereof. ¶And Dear Lord, when the last night camp of our pilgrimage is made, and one by one we stand at the breaks, at the rim-rock of eternity, grant to us faith's sure vision of Him who explored life for us and left the trail of His footprints so plainly in human history, who tasted death for us and mapped the valley of the shadow, who waits to walk with us across the new land-- the hills and valleys of eternity. ¶In the name of our Lord Christ we reverently invoke a blessing upon this occasion and this day.

AMEN.
