President Washington’s Prayer for the Nation

February 15, 2021

Almighty God; we make our earnest prayer
that Thou wilt keep the United States in Thy holy protection,
that Thou wilt incline the hearts of citizens to cultivate
a spirit of subordination and obedience to government;
and entertain a brotherly affection and love for one another
and for their fellow citizens of the United States of America at large.
And finally, that Thou wilt most graciously be pleased
to dispose us all to do justice, to love mercy and to demean ourselves
with that charity, humility and pacific temper of mind
which were the characteristics of The Divine Author
of our blessed religion, and without whose example
in these things we can never hope to be a happy nation.
Grant our supplication, we beseech Thee,
through Jesus Christ Our Lord.

Amen.
