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 the citizens to cultivate a spirit of
subordination and obedience to government; to entertain a brotherly affection and love for
one another and for their fellow-citizens of the United States at large. Amen.

George Washington
Prayer after his Inauguration
