From the Congressional Record Online through GPO
Reverend William D. Johnson, Jr., Harbour Lake Baptist Church, Goose
Creek, South Carolina, offered the following prayer:
Dear Heavenly Father, we thank You for the day that You have bestowed
upon us. May our actions glorify You
in all that we do. We humbly request that You, Lord, place Your
providential hand of protection upon every Member, their families, and
those who guard and protect this Chamber.
O gracious God, remind us daily that while we are here to represent
the people, our authority comes from You, for there is no authority
except from God, and those who exist are established by God.
May there be renewal of prayer across the United States. God, place a
burden upon us that we may seek You before we undertake any endeavor.
God bless the House of Representatives, and God bless these United
States of America.
I ask this in the name of Jesus Christ.
