2161. DEITY, Supplications to.—

I shall need the favor of that Being in whose hands
we are, Who led our forefathers, as Israel of
old, from their native land, and planted them
in a country flowing with all the necessaries
and comforts of life; Who has covered our
infancy with His providence, and our riper
years with His wisdom and power; and to
whose goodness I ask you to join with me
in supplications, that He will so enlighten
the minds of your servants, guide their councils,
and prosper their measures, that whatsoever
they do shall result in your good, and
shall secure to you the peace, friendship, and
approbation of all nations.—
Second Inaugural Address. Washington ed. viii, 45. Ford ed., viii, 347.
