The PRESIDING OFFICER. Today's prayer will be offered by our guest Chaplain, Father Patrick J. Conroy, the Chaplain of the U.S. House of Representatives.

The guest Chaplain offered the following prayer:

Let us pray.

Eternal Lord God, we are astounded by the bountiful flow of Your blessings. We thank You for the gift of this day that we receive from Your generous bounty.

Inspire our lawmakers to use these precious hours and minutes for Your glory. Help them to understand that when they have an awareness of the brevity of their days on Earth, it will provide them with hearts of wisdom.

Bless also and strengthen the many staffers who provide the wind beneath the wings of our leaders.

We pray in Your Holy Name. ____________________
