“Bless us with the humility to accept logic and evidence.” An Inaugural Prayer from Germany. #myinauguralprayer

Our next installment in our inaugural prayer series comes from Hellmut Lotz. He is a political scientist and campaign consultant living in Germany.  He also lived in Utah and Maryland for a total of 17 years.

Here is Hellmut’s prayer for today’s Inauguration:

Bless us with the humility to accept logic and evidence.

Bless us with the generosity to cooperate with one another.

Bless us with the courage to defend the rights of the few and the unpopular.

And bless us with the charity to nurture the weak, the children, the old, and the unfortunate.

I will add just this: Amen.

Thanks, Hellmut.
