The Chaplain, the Reverend Patrick J. Conroy, offered the following prayer:

Lord of Heaven and Earth, we give You thanks for giving us another day.

Darkness descends upon us as the days grow shorter, and the cold chastens us to withdraw inside. Be for us the light we long for. The very promise of change creates expectation.

By the first hints of Your dawn, banish all fear and hesitation. May those who live on the margins of America's rich blessings have peace and prosperity too.

Because You are always faithful, strengthen us with Your mighty arm, that this Congress may be unified in lifting Your people to renewed hope.

May all that is done in the people's House be for Your greater honor and glory.

Amen. ____________________
