The Chaplain, Dr. Barry C. Black, offered the following prayer:
Let us pray.
Lord God of Hosts, be with us yet, lest we forget that our work on
Capitol Hill matters to Your Kingdom.
Lord, with the military response against Syria, we are reminded again
that eternal vigilance is the price for freedom. Continue to provide
our lawmakers with opportunities to serve Your purposes on Earth.
May they take seriously the responsibilities entrusted to them in
their stewardship of the legislative branch. Remind them that You know
the pressures they must confront as they strive to serve You and
country. Bestow upon them the blessing of Your presence that will guard
their hearts with Your peace.
Lord, give them the confidence that, in following You, they can be
certain of ultimate triumph.
We pray in Your Holy Name. Amen.
