The Chaplain, Dr. Barry C. Black, offered the following prayer:

Let us pray.

O Eternal God, who rules the raging of the sea, You are our guardian and friend. Place Your arms of protection and wisdom around our lawmakers, shielding them from life's pitfalls and using them for Your glory. Lord, be their refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble. May they rejoice because of Your mercies, serving You with grateful hearts. Turn the night of their distress into the morning of Your hope, causing them to wait patiently for the unfolding of Your loving providence. May they feel Your everlasting arms beneath them and find peace in Your presence.

We pray in Your great Name. Amen. ____________________
