[Congressional Record Volume 163, Number 190 (Tuesday, November 21, 2017)]
From the Congressional Record Online through GPO
Reverend Dr. Scott Wilson, Capitol Hill Presbyterian Church,
Washington, D.C., offered the following prayer:
Our loving God, we pause this morning to give You thanks for the many
blessings that we have received. We are thankful for this land where we
can freely worship and speak Your truth and seek Your justice.
We pray today for a spirit of unity. You have blessed us with a
country, a nation, of magnificent diversity, yet our oneness is that
which we celebrate. Each person is a separate treasure, unique, from
different backgrounds, but each of us share in our humanity a common
need for the essentials of life. We recognize and even rejoice in the
ways we differ as we seek to be one people.
We pray today for all Representatives, staff and their families, that
they may enjoy safe travel, a blessed rest, and renewal on this
Thanksgiving holiday. May all feel Your presence and Your peace in this
