The PRESIDING OFFICER. Today's prayer will be offered by Pastor Bill Ewing of Christian Life Ministries in Rapid City, SD.

The guest Chaplain offered the following prayer:

Please join me.

As we bow our knees before You, Father, grant us thankful hearts and let our eyes see the many blessings we have been given living in this great land.

Put a protective hedge around these leaders, their marriages, and their families, and let peace dwell in their homes. O Lord, strengthen these that You have placed with this authority so Christ may dwell in their hearts through faith; and that they would be rooted and grounded in loving kindness and truth. May they be able to comprehend the knowledge of Your will and to know the love of Christ so they make decisions that protect and preserve the lives You have entrusted to them.

Lord, teach us to listen. The times are noisy and our ears are weary with the thousands of sounds that continuously assault us. Give us the spirit of young Samuel when he said to You, “Speak, for Your servant is listening.” Let us hear You speaking in our hearts so that we get used to the sound of Your voice; that its tones may be familiar to us, and we would lead this great Nation accordingly.

Amen. ____________________
