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. ____________________
