From the Congressional Record Online through GPO
The Chaplain, Dr. Barry C. Black, offered the following prayer:
Let us pray.
Almighty God, source of all goodness, use our lawmakers today for
Your glory. Make them undaunted people who strive to know Your will and
experience Your power. Provide them with exactly what they need to
accomplish Your purposes. May they receive Heaven's approbation for
their faithful service to You and country. Lord, transform their
intractable problems with solutions from Your throne. We commit the
work of this day to You, receiving Your strength to honor Your Name.
And, Lord, we thank You for the faithfulness of our summer pages.
Bless these young people as they prepare to leave us.
We pray in Your generous Name. Amen.
