The proclamation also states that the state is seeking forgiveness from God.
“WHEREAS, we seek forgiveness for our many transgressions so that our hearts and our minds may be renewed,” the document reads.
It also states the importance of the Scripture and how everyone needs the guidance of God for the days ahead.
“WHEREAS Scripture tells us that the beginning of wisdom is the fear of the Lord, and the Lord gives wisdom freely to those who ask for it; and WHEREAS, the people of Tennessee acknowledge our rich blessings, our deep transgressions, the complex challenges ahead, and the need to pause, to humble ourselves, and to seek God’s guidance for the days ahead.”
