You, O Lord, are the source of life and love. You hear the prayer of
Congress, both for the good of this Nation and for the good of humanity

will in our day.
By drawing upon the truth taken from a diversity of opinions, may a

clear analysis, and creative response to the needs of our time.
In these days, give wisdom to all the Members, and may all that is
done be for Your greater honor and glory.
