The Chaplain, Dr. Barry C. Black, offered the following prayer:
Let us pray.
O God, You are the source of life and peace. Praised be Your Name
forever. We know that it is You who can turn our thoughts toward peace
and unity. Use Your power to transform our minds and hearts.
Lord, as our Senators face the challenges of today and tomorrow, give
them a faith that will find opportunities in every adversity. May they
cast their burdens on You, trusting Your loving kindness and tender
mercies. Give them an understanding that puts an end to strife, mercy
that quenches animosity, and forgiveness that overcomes resentment. May
each day be for them a building block for making America a nation that
We pray in Your mighty Name. Amen.
