I hate to diappoint you, but seclorum does not mean "secular". It means "of the centuries", or "of the ages". (Saeculum in Latin means a hundred year cycle. "Centuria", from which we get the English word century means a collectio of 100 of something, not necessarily 100 years.)
Annuit copetis means "He has favoured our undertakings", where "He" is understood to be the Great Spirit of the Universe -- otherwise known as God.
