Excerpts: GEORGE WASHINGTON, APRIL 30, 1789, INAUGURAL ADDRESS: "It would be peculiarly improper to omit, in this first official act, my fervent supplications to that Almighty Being who rules over the universe....We ought to be no less persuaded that the propitious smiles of Heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right which Heaven itself has ordained." ABRAHAM LINCOLN, MARCH 4, 1865, INAUGURAL ADDRESS: "If God will that it continue until all the wealth piled by the bondsmen's two hundred and fifty years of unrequited toil shall be sunk, and until every drop of blood drawn with the lash shall be paid by another drawn with the sword, as was said three thousand years ago, so still it must be said 'the judgements of the Lord are true and righteous altogether.'" FRANKLIN ROOSEVELT, JANUARY 20, 1945, INAUGURAL ADDRESS: "So we pray to Him now for the vision to see our way clearly - to see the way that leads to a better life for ourselves and for all our fellow men - to the achievement of His will, to peace on earth. In the presence of God - I know that it is America's purpose that we shall not fail." RONALD REAGAN, JANUARY 20, 1981, INAUGURAL ADDRESS: "With God's help, we can and will resolve the problems which now confront us. And after all, why shouldn't we believe that? We are Americans."
