The Heart of The King is in the Lord’s Hand

ALMIGHTY and everlasting God, we are taught by thy Holy Word that the hearts of princes are in thy rule and governance, and that thou doest dispose and turn them as it seems best to thy Godly wisdom: we humbly beseech thee, so to dispose and govern the heart of President Obama, thy servant, our President and governor, that in all his thoughts, words, and works he may ever seek thy honor and glory, and study to preserve thy people committed to his charge, in peace and godliness. Grant this O merciful Father, for thy dear Son’s sake Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

-An adaption from the Book of Common Prayer, 1559
