Prayers from Our Past Presidents
I pray God I may be given the wisdom and the prudence to do
my duty in the true spirit of this great people.
In entering upon this great office I must humbly invoke the God of
our fathers for wisdom and firmness to execute its high and responsible duties in such a manner as to restore harmony and ancient friendship among the people of the several States and to preserve our free institutions throughout many generations.
So we pray to Him now for the wisdom to see our way clearly … to
see the way that leads to a better life for ourselves and all our fellow men – to the achievement of His will to peace on earth.
Franklin D. Roosevelt
I would like to have my frequent prayer answered that God let my
life be meaningful in the enhancement of His kingdom and that my
life might be meaningful in the enhancement of the lives of my fellow human beings.
Make us strong to do Your work, willing to heed and hear Your will, and write upon our hearts these words, “Use power to help people.”
George H. W. Bush
