Woodrow Wilson 2nd Inaugural Address - Praying to God

In Woodrow Wilson's second Inaugural address (1917) he said:

"We are being forged into a new unity amidst the fires that now blaze throughout the world. In their ardent heat we shall, in God's Providence, let us hope, be purged of faction and division, purified of the errant humors of party and of private interest, and shall stand forth in the days to come with a new dignity of national pride and spirit. ... "I pray God I may be given the wisdom and the prudence to do my duty in the true spirit of this great people."
