Presidential Inauguration Day 2008

A Prayer for the President of the United States, and all in Civil Authority.

From the historic 1789 Book of Common Prayer.

O Lord, our heavenly Father, the high and mighty Ruler of the universe, who dost from thy throne behold all the dwellers upon earth; Most heartily we beseech thee, with thy favour to behold and bless thy servant The President of the United States, and all others in authority; and so replenish them with the grace of thy Holy Spirit, that they may always incline to thy will, and walk in thy way. Endue them plenteously with heavenly gifts; grant them in health and prosperity long to live; and finally, after this life, to attain everlasting joy and felicity; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

[It is said that George Washington had requested of Episcopalian Bishop William White that this prayer be retained in the Offices of Morning and Evening Prayer.]
