God of the universe, thank You for giving us another day.
It is Your nature to hold us in Your living presence always. It is our nature to think of You or of others only momentarily or in passing.
Be with each of us that we may be our very best and prove ourselves worthy of Your love and Your grace.
Bless the Members of the people's House in their work and deliberations today that they might merit the trust of the American people and manifest the strength of our republican democracy to the nations of the world.
Without You, O Lord, we can do nothing. With You and in You, we can establish a community of peace, goodness, and justice now and forever.
May all that is done this day be for Your greater honor and glory.
“People are often unreasonable, irrational, and self–centered.
Forgive them anyway.
If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives.
Be kind anyway.
If you are successful, you will win some unfaithful friends and some genuine enemies.
If you are honest and sincere people may deceive you.
Be honest and sincere anyway.
What you spend years creating, other could destroy overnight.
If you find security and happiness, some may be jealous.
Be happy anyway.
The good you do today, will often be forgotten.
Do good anyway.
Give the best you have, and it will never be enough.
Give your best anyway.
In the final analysis, it is between you and God. It was never between you and them anyway.

Members and staff are invited each Wednesday at 11:00 am to pray the Rosary in H–234, the Congressional Prayer Room.
Praying the Rosary is a way to reflect on the life of Christ through the perspective of Mary. It only takes twenty minutes for this traditional time of prayer.
We welcome all who are interested, those who regularly pray the Rosary and those who wish to learn. We have prayer sheets and rosaries available.
If you have any questions, please call Karen Bronson in the Chaplain's Office at 6–4835. Or email Karen.Bronson@mail.house.gov
