To all contributors and to all readers of this weblog, let us take these two days to reflect upon our nation’s Constitution. Let us honour those who have, are, and will preserve and defend that treasure contract between the several and sovereign States. I commission us to hold today and tomorrow as a National Day of Prayer.
Lord, our God,
All earthy powers must serve you.
Help our new President, Barack Hussein Obama
to fulfil his responsibilities worthy and well.
By honouring and striving to please you at all times,
may he secure peace and liberty
for your people entrusted to him,
may he preserve and defend our Constitution
as written without bending it to popular intent,
may he defend Life, Liberty, and our pursuit of happiness.
We ask this with our hearts lifted up and opened toward you.
