Chaplain Jacob Duche

I truly loved Chaplain Jacob Duche’s prayer at the First Continental Congress in September 1774. He first read the 35th Psalm and then continued with an unprepared prayer. Duche was not only a Reverend but also a real patriot. After the creation of the Declaration of Independence, the colonists passed a law stating that no one should read the name of King George III in any prayers. Duche agreed, but this was a very dangerous act for a clergyman.
