The Chaplain, Dr. Barry C. Black, offered the following prayer:
Let us pray.
Lord God of Heaven and Earth, today teach our lawmakers to do things
Your way, embracing Your precepts and walking in Your path. Make them
peaceful and powerful instruments for goodness in our Nation and world.
Remind them that the narrow and difficult road leads to life and few
find it, but You honor those who honor You.
As our Senators receive guidance from You and follow Your leading,
replace anxiety with calm, confusion with clarity, and despair with
hope. Give them attentive hearts and open minds as they seek to find in
the diversity of ideas what is best for our Nation and world. May peace
become the hallmark of their work.
We pray in Your great Name. Amen.
