The Pastor's Post
Because of our recent presidential inauguration, I have been reading about inauguration history. As I did, I came across information at www.belief.net indicating that since 1937 the ceremony has incorporated two or more prayers. I found prayers offered at each of the inaugurations. Here is the first prayer offered January 20, 1937 at President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s second inauguration.
Invocation by Chaplain ZeBarney Phillips, Chaplain of the U.S. Senate:
“Almighty God and Heavenly Father, ruler and guardian of the world: Sanctify to the nation the meaning of this hour that Thy people with one heart and mind may acknowledge their fealty to Thee.
Be with the President and the Vice President, as under Thee they renew their solemn pledges of devotion to their country’s weal in the high and holy offices to which again they have been called; let the blessings of Thy bounteous goodness be upon them, upon the Congress, upon the Judiciary and upon all who bear rule in our land.
In particular, we beseech Thee for our President that, casting all his care upon Thee, he may feel underneath Thine everlasting arms. Touch Thou his lips that he may speak, in the words of the unshorn truth and never-wearying kindness. They message for the healing of the nations, and hasten the day when men shall rise above all lesser things to those glorious heights where love shall weave a holy bond of peace enduring till earth’s shadows vanish in the light of light. Amen.”
(Originally published by New York Times January 21, 1937).
While the context is different and while I might choose different words, I find the sentiment of the prayer to be most applicable these eighty years later in 2017. I do pray for our newly inaugurated president, vice-president, all elected officials, citizens of this nation, and those who hope to be citizens. I encourage everyone to do the same.
In God We Trust,
