We give You thanks, O merciful God, for giving us another day.
There have been many prayers this day rising to You from those engaged in the political discourse of this Nation. We give You thanks for those who were able to gather at the National Prayer Breakfast and those across this land who joined their prayer intentions with the many who attended.
Bless the Members of this people's House now as they gather to do the legislative work they are called to do. May their prayers this day be authentic and heard by You, the living God.
May their work be fruitful and beneficial to those whom You favor––the poor––and may all they do be done in humility and charity, knowing that we are all earthen vessels through whom Your spirit might shine forth.
And, finally, may all that is done this day be for Your greater honor and glory.
“Charity, by which God and neighbor are loved, is the most perfect friendship.”
