Lord,
this month we recall with reverence
the lives of the great Presidents
who wove the character of our people
upon the loom of history.
From them we have inherited the legacy
that free men alone can create the good society.
Today, when the acids of disillusionment
corrode our faith in democracy,
when the young despair,
we pray for a renewal of their vision
and exultant faith.
Help us to regain that idealism
which moved America’s races and peoples
toward brotherhood,
where, transcending differences,
we can realize our individualities.
Make us whole as we pray
that tomorrow’s great mission of peace
will be the giant step
for the recovery of man’s humanity
and the discovery of our oneness.
Amen.
