The Chaplain, Dr. Barry C. Black, offered the following prayer:
Let us pray.
Eternal God, we praise You for Your goodness; Your faithful love
endures forever. You are the protector of Your people.
Today, recapture the minds of our lawmakers and galvanize their
wills. May they live blameless lives, doing what is right and speaking
the truth from sincere hearts. Lord, infuse them with the spirit of
humility so that they will seek to be guided by Your wisdom. May they
keep their priorities straight, remembering that You are the only
constituent they absolutely must please. Help them to make it their
primary goal to please You in what they think, say, and accomplish.
We praise You and pray in Your Holy Name. Amen.
