The PRESIDING OFFICER. Today's opening prayer will be offered by our guest Chaplain, the Reverend Bruce Scott, pastor of Pentecostals of South Lake, from Merrillville, IN.

The guest Chaplain offered the following prayer:

Let us pray.

Precious Lord, Creator of the heavens and the Earth, and all that dwells therein, we honor You from a grateful heart, knowing all of our blessings that we enjoy every day come from You.

Heavenly Father, as the Senators assemble in this Chamber today, let them come together in unity to build a stronger and better America. Thank You for their dedication and commitment, as they labor together with You for what is right and acceptable in Your sight. This Nation was founded on biblical principles. Lord, I pray that You would grant to them wisdom to make right decisions. The Old Testament prophet declares it is not by might, nor by power but by My Spirit, saith the Lord. Bless their families at home with peace and safety.

Lord, bless our military all over this world. Just as You paid the ultimate price for our freedom on Calvary, our brave military men and women are willing to give their all so we may live in freedom today. Strengthen and encourage each family as they wait for the safe return of their loved one. Bless and protect our first responders, police, fire, and EMS personnel.

It is true that God has shed His Grace on us. Lord, surround this Chamber with Your presence.

We pray in Jesus's Name. Amen. ____________________
