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

Let us pray.

Eternal Lord God, we rejoice because of Your power. We are dependent upon You to rescue us from ourselves and from the unseen consequences of the challenges we face.

Guide and sustain our Senators, enabling them to know the joy of having You as their sure defense. May Your unfailing love, O God, which is as vast as the Heavens, motivate our lawmakers to make faithfulness their top priority. Use them to give justice a chance to thrive in a threatening world. Lord, infuse them with the spirit of humility that seeks first to understand rather than to be understood. May they find their strength and confidence in You alone.

We pray in Your great Name. Amen. ____________________
