Reverend Patrick J. Conroy, S.J.

Eternal God, we give You thanks for giving us another day.

Once again we come to You to ask wisdom, patience and peace for the Members of the people's House. As they encounter their constituents, endow them with grace and understanding, especially of those issues which are most pressing.

Please keep all who work for the people's House in good health, that they might faithfully fulfill the great responsibility given them in their service to the work of the Capitol.

Bless us this day and every day. May all that is done here this day be for Your greater honor and glory.
