Who said this?

it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His benefits, and humbly to implore His protection and favor.

See the answer here.

Who spoke of the following, in the context of Thanksgiving?

the heart which is habitually insensible to the ever watchful providence of Almighty God

and

the gracious gifts of the Most High God, who, while dealing with us in anger for our sins, hath nevertheless remembered mercy.

Which historical figures in America made these statements?

On the same day, in the same hour, let us pray: Almighty God, who hast given us this good land for our heritage; We humbly beseech Thee that we may always prove ourselves a people mindful of Thy favor and glad to do Thy will.

At this season, when the year is drawing to a close, tradition suggests and our hearts require that we render humble devotion to Almighty God for the mercies bestowed upon us by His goodness. Devoutly grateful to Divine Providence for the richness of our endowment and the many blessings received, may we continue to give a good account of our stewardship by utilizing our resources in the service of mankind.

… rendering thanks to Almighty God for the bounties of the soil and for His mercies throughout the year.

It is a good thing to give thanks unto the Lord.

In keeping with America’s heritage, one day each year is set aside for giving thanks to God for all of His blessings.”
