Date of Prayer: 05/24/2000

Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

God of all creation, and source of unending peace, be with this House and bless it. Let good work be done within its walls. May only truth be spoken here.

Give to those standing in this chamber the wisdom to know their weakness, the humility to acknowledge Your strength, and the courage to let justice be the sole motivator of their work.

By the manner of their lives, let them proclaim the rightness of walking freely in Your sight.

By their love for our country and for their fellow citizens, may they serve well those who sent them to this place; may they lead by following You, the author of all truth, and show the way, by cherishing Your presence in their hearts.
