One Minute Speech Given in Recognition of the Guest Chaplain:

Ms. MOORE. Mr. Speaker, it is really, truly a pleasure to welcome Greg Young here as our guest chaplain.
I just want to note that I met him on an airplane during the time of a great, great distress, illness in my family, and he prayed for me; and he is here today at another time when I am experiencing some family illness.
It just goes to demonstrate that no matter what your race, creed, color, gender, there is always somebody out there who can touch you, someone out there who can bring the spiritual resources to you, if you just open up your heart and your mind.
Thank God for Greg Young, and I thank him for visiting us today.;

Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

O God, author of all that is good, true, and beautiful, we gather together today to give You thanks. Thanks for the privilege of living in this great Nation, and for the privilege of serving its people.
As we journey into this new gift of today, I ask that You bless these who represent our great Nation and all who support them. Grant them
inspired thought and action that transcends ideology. Inspire those here today with courageous and creative deliberation and nobility of purpose. Grant, O God, that these walls resound with the clarion call of freedom and justice for all which stand as the bedrock of our
Nation.
We humbly ask, God of tender loving mercy, that You guide the collective wisdom and discourse of these Representatives.
May God bless this House and all who serve. God bless the President.
May God bless the United States of America.
Amen.
