The Chaplain, the Reverend Patrick J. Conroy, offered the following prayer:

Gracious and merciful God, we give You thanks for giving us another day.

In this Chamber, where the people's House gathers, we pause to offer You gratitude for the gift of this good land on which we live, and for this great Nation which You have inspired in developing over so many years. Continue to inspire the American people, that through the difficulties of these days we might keep liberty and justice alive in our Nation, and in the world.

On this day the House anticipates weather which is already affecting millions of Americans. Grant that the severity of this late winter storm wane. But for those affected, may the assistance of first responders and more fortunate neighbors ease the passage through this weather, prove that the fiber of our national community is strong and reliable.

May all that is done this day be for Your greater honor and glory.

Amen. ____________________
