Washington’s Prayer

Almighty Father, if it is Thy holy will that we shall obtain a place and name among the nations of the earth, grant that we may be enabled to show our gratitude for Thy goodness, by our endeavors to fear and obey Thee.  Bless us with wisdom in our councils, success in battle, and let all our victories be tempered with humanity.  Endow, also, our enemies with enlightened minds, that they may become sensible of their injustice, and willing to restore our liberty and peace.  Grant the petition of Thy servant for the sake of Him whom Thou hast called Thy beloved Son; nevertheless, not our will but Thine be done.  Amen.
