The Chaplain, Dr. Barry C. Black, offered the following prayer:
Let us pray.
Eternal God, Sovereign of this planet, give us the wisdom to
surrender to Your will.
Lord, guide our lawmakers to trust You with all of their challenges
and opportunities, as they strive to please You in their thoughts,
words, and actions. Provide them with the discernment they need to
tackle the problems of these critical times. When they feel
overwhelmed, sustain them as they give You their burdens. As they seek
to be totally dependent on You for their guidance and strength, free
them from the chains of anxiety and fear. May Your sovereign might
abound in their lives.
We pray in Your loving Name. Amen.
