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

Let us pray.

Eternal Lord God, our shelter in the time of storms, thank You for Your mercies that are new each day. Lord, through many dangers You have brought us, and we would not be guilty of ingratitude. We are grateful for catastrophes that haven't happened, for the unseen angels who have guarded our Nation and those we love. May our lawmakers remember that all efforts to defend ourselves will fail without Your sovereign will and loving providence. May our Senators not put their trust only in their ingenuity and courage but instead lean on You, the Author and Finisher of our faith. Today, lead our legislators on right paths as they trust You to clear the road on which they travel. Order their steps and direct their way, training them in Your school of humility so that they will strive to bring glory to You.

We pray in Your Holy Name. Amen. ____________________
