From the Congressional Record Online through GPO
Chaplain Marshall Dunbar, Christian Community Action, Lewisville,
Texas, offered the following prayer:
Heavenly Father, thank You for the opportunity You have given me to
stand before the men and women of this House, who have the awesome
responsibility of governing this great Nation. Help them to come
together in unity, for Your Word reminds us that a house divided
against itself cannot stand.
So believing You know what we have need of before we even ask,
together we offer this prayer as taught by Your Son, Jesus Christ:
Our Father, which art in Heaven, hallowed be Thy name. Thy kingdom
come, Thy will be done on Earth, as it is in Heaven. Give us this day
our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil, for Thine is
the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, forever.
