The Chaplain, Dr. Barry C. Black, offered the following prayer:
Let us pray.
Our Father God, thank You that we see You in the world around us,
beholding Your works in the Earth and sea and sky. Your everlasting
mercies sustain us, enabling us to borrow our heartbeats from You each
Today, be for our lawmakers an abiding and sustaining presence. May
they live to serve and honor You, bringing glory to Your Name. Make
them patient in debate, charitable in judgment, and slow to anger.
Lord, empower them to defend and maintain the right, as they seek
justice and freedom for all.
We pray in Your sacred Name. Amen.
