The Chaplain, Dr. Barry C. Black, offered the following prayer:
Let us pray.
O God, our Father, in these turbulent and uncertain times use our
lawmakers to live to bless others, bringing glory to Your Name with
their sacrificial service. Lord, give them wisdom to persevere through
the difficult, to stay calm when facing the irritating, and to
experience Your peace even when things go wrong. Enable them to be
helpful to the challenged, kind to the needy, and sympathetic to those
whose hearts are bruised by life's setbacks. Surround our Senators with
Your protection and the shield of Your Divine favor, bringing them to
Your expected end.
We pray in Your merciful Name. Amen.
