The Office of the Chaplain United States House of Representatives

Reverend Dr. Kurt Gerhard

St. Patrick's Episcopal Church
Washington, DC

Date of Prayer: 01/28/2016

Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

O merciful God, be with these United States and especially with the elected Representatives of this 114th Congress. As they debate and vote on legislation that will determine the future path of this country, open their hearts and minds to the needs of all people, but make them especially aware of those who are ignored or forgotten, the downtrodden and marginalized, those among our citizenry whose voices and needs are overwhelmed by the noisy clamor of the world because it is these people who most need the representation and leadership of this House.

We ask this all in the name of the one God: the Creator, redeemer, and sustainer of every nation.
