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

Let us pray.

God of love and laughter, we thank You for all of Your benefits. Your mercies to us are new each day. You send the sunshine and the rain. You provide us with seed time and harvest. You protect us from dangers and inspire us with Your abiding presence.

Lord, thank You for providing our lawmakers with the gift of Your peace, even in the midst of life's storms. Supply all their needs from the abundance of Your celestial riches. Transform their gratitude into service to those who must daily experience the pain of privation and despair. Help us all to express our faith in You with deeds of love.

And, Lord, please be with the Larkin family during this season of grief.

We pray in Your merciful Name. Amen. ____________________
