The Chaplain, Dr. Barry C. Black, offered the following prayer:
Let us pray.
Almighty God, great is Your faithfulness. We find strength in
difficult times because our thoughts about Your mercy and providential
care sustain us.
Lord, guide our lawmakers to make You their sure foundation. From
this foundation, may they gain strength for today and bright hope for
tomorrow. Help them to base their hope on Your exceedingly great and
precious promises, as You do for them more than they can ask or
imagine. May they have such an inner sense of Your presence that they
will desire to commune with You throughout this day.
And, Lord, bless our incoming summer page class. May these young
people increase intellectually, physically, socially, and spiritually.
We pray in Your great Name. Amen.
