“May None But Honest and Wise”


Here is a prayer you can use as you pray for elections in 2008. It comes from a letter written by President John Adams, first occupant of the newly-constructed White House. I saw the prayer engraved in a mantle piece inside the East Wing of the White House, and snapped a picture while at the pro-life breakfast and reception January 22nd.

It reads:

I Pray Heaven To Bestow The Best of Blessings on This House And All that shall hereafter Inhabit it May none but Honest and Wise men ever rule under This Roof.

– President John Adams

Prayer of John Adams inscribed on East Wing mantlepiece.
