From the Congressional Record Online through GPO
The Chaplain, the Reverend Patrick J. Conroy, offered the following
Gracious God, thank You for giving us another day.
We ask Your blessing of strength and perseverance that each Member
might best serve their constituents and our entire Nation.
The debates and issues that dominate the legislative landscape, as
always, are contentious and challenging. Many Americans are anxious to
know what will come to pass.
Bless the Members of Congress with wisdom, equanimity, and good will
as they struggle to find solutions that might unite rather than further
divide our Nation. We know this is a lot to ask, but grant also to all
Americans increased faith and hope, virtues most in need in these
difficult days, that their Representatives might faithfully perform
their appointed tasks.
May all that is done this day be for Your greater honor and glory.
