Andrew Jackson Second Inaugural (1833) - Praying to Almighty God

Andrew Jackson was the 7th President of the United States. In his Second Inaugural address from 1833, he said:

"Finally, it is my most fervent prayer to that Almighty Being before whom I now stand, and who has kept us in His hands from the infancy of our Republic to the present day, that He will so overrule all my intentions and actions and inspire the hearts of my fellow-citizens that we may be preserved from dangers of all kinds and continue forever a united and happy people."
