Prayer for President Obama

God of the nations in whom we live and move and have our being, and from whom cometh every good and perfect gift, we pause at the beginning of this day's historic proceeding to invoke Thy blessings upon this beloved country of ours, and upon all who serve her highest interets.

Grant to Thy servant, the President of the United States, all needed wisdom, help, and strength as he rededicates himself anew today to the high office to which he has been called. May he continue to lead us as he is led by Thee, in the ways that make for domestic tranquillity and international accord.

Bestow upon us, our Father, the happiness which is reserved for that nation whose God is the Lord, through Jesus Christ, our Redeemer, we pray, amen.

Invocation by Rev. Edward Hughes Pruden
1949 inagural of President Harry S. Truman
