The Chaplain, Dr. Barry C. Black, offered the following prayer:
Let us pray.
Eternal Father, strong to save, we love You because You are our
shield and deliverer. You have been our God from the moment of our
birth, loving and sustaining us with Your mercies.
Lord, You loved us before we loved You, and You empowered us to live
productive lives. Cast out of our Senators any fear and anxiety, as
their love for You increases. Teach them to treat others as they would
want to be treated themselves, fulfilling Your admonition to practice
the Golden Rule. May they seek You early, realizing that not an hour
goes by when we do not need You. Supply all their needs from the bounty
of Your riches in glory.
We pray in Your sovereign Name. Amen.
