Reverend Dr. Alan Kieran

Office of the United States Senate Chaplain

Date of Prayer: 05/03/2011

Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

Most Holy God, Creator and sustainer of the Universe, we come to this Chamber today with humility and expectation.

In humility because we know that You have appointed our elected members and Capitol Hill staff for such a time as this.

In expectation because faith in You brings untold blessings to hearts, homes and nations.

You say, O God, that from those to whom You have given much, much is expected.

Endow our leaders with good health.

Strengthen them in body, mind and soul for the busy days ahead.

Grant them Your wisdom, peace and joy in this season of fruitful labor.

And, may we all reap a harvest or righteousness as we serve You and our Nation’s citizens.

I pray in Your everlasting Name. Amen.
