Honoring Our Presidents

Bill Thompson - Chaplin

Bill Thompson – Chaplin

On this Presidents Day, February 15 we honor Presidents Washington and Lincoln, both of whom were born in February. It’s also been extended to honor pretty much all other presidents past, present and future, a day of respect for the highest office in the land. Right now, there’s a lot of interest in who will be taking that office next. Let’s take a look at the prayer of President Dwight Eisenhower:

“Almighty God, as we stand here, at this moment, my future associates in the executive branch of the government join me in beseeching that Thou will make full and complete our dedication to the service of the people in this throng and their fellow citizens everywhere. Give us, we pray, the power to discern clearly right from wrong and allow all our works and actions to be governed thereby and by the laws of this land. Especially we pray that our concern shall be for all the people, regardless of station, race or calling. May cooperation be permitted and be the mutual aim of those who, under the concept of our Constitution, hold to differing political beliefs, so that all may work for the good of our beloved country and for Thy glory. Amen” –Dwight Eisenhower
