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

Eternal Lord God, our sure foundation, we need You during this challenging season.

As our lawmakers face a Friday deadline to fund the Federal Government beyond April 28, inspire them to be part of the solutions and not the problems. Remind them that Your first command to humanity in Genesis 1 was to be productive, to solve problems, to subdue the Earth, and to have sovereignty.

Lord, give our Senators the wisdom to subdue division, rancor, and partisanship. May their primary desire be to unite in the common cause of doing what is best for our Nation and world. Show them how to protect the Constitution against all enemies, foreign and domestic.

May those who believe in You remember that You are the only constituent whom they must always seek to please.

We pray in Your merciful Name. Amen. ____________________
