The Chaplain, Dr. Barry C. Black, offered the following prayer:

Let us pray.

Eternal God, our hope for years to come, we offer You a sacrifice of thanksgiving. We thank You for Your steadfast love that sustains our lawmakers every hour. We thank You for surrounding our Senators with Your presence that permits them to dwell in peace.

Lord, we are grateful for the joy we all receive by observing the works of Your hands, finding pleasure in the beauty of the sunrise and the glory of the sunset. We gaze with wonder at the majesty of the butterfly and the soaring eagle, knowing that the same hands that guide them in flight desire to direct our steps.

Generous God, we celebrate Your love that provides redemption for humanity. You sacrificed Yourself for our salvation.

Lord of all, to You we raise this our prayer of grateful praise.

We pray in Your bountiful Name. Amen. ____________________
