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

Let us pray.

Our Lord and God, we would not journey through this day without contact with You. Increase our faith, hope, and love, that we may receive Your promises.

Be merciful to our lawmakers and fill them with Your hope. May they be fully persuaded in their minds about receiving guidance from You for the decisions they make.

Lord, deliver them from a reluctance to respect honest differences as they remember their ultimate accountability to You. Provide them with Divine insights as they grapple with complexities that require nuanced choices. May their ultimate goal be to serve You by doing what is best for our Nation and world.

We pray in Your strong Name. Amen. ____________________
