The Chaplain, the Reverend Patrick J. Conroy, offered the following
God, Father of us all, we give You thanks for giving us another day.
Please send Your spirit upon this assembly, that the men and women
who serve the United States in contentious times such as these might
better work together for the benefit of our Nation. This is not easy,
so bless them with Your wisdom and give them the patience and
understanding to rise to the demands of their calling.
So also we ask Your blessing upon our world, where so many live and
unfortunately die in nations and regions cursed by violence and
division. Lord, have mercy.
Lord, be with us this day and all days, and may all that is done be
for Your greater honor and glory.
