Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

Lord God,

Holy Scripture teaches us, "Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows." The men and women who serve this great nation in this House are gifts to us from You! We thank You and praise You for their labor on behalf of these United States.

As they study and debate various issues, illuminate them with wisdom from above. When they make decisions that affect our lives, cause them to be ever mindful of the trust we place in them. Use them to glorify You by bringing peace to our troubled planet.

Please bless each branch of our government. Protect them in their travels. Watch over their families and loved ones in their absence. Supply them with time for rest and renewal. Make us all responsible citizens and neighbors. In Jesus' name we pray. Amen.
