Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

O God, we thank you for blessing this nation. Help us not to forget that with your blessing comes our responsibility to bless the peoples of the earth.

We confess our need for your guidance. Extend your mercy and love, forgive us of our self–seeking ways, and make us into a nation after your own heart.

We recognize that these are challenging days, and the decisions made by this House will have profound effect on our nation and the world. Help every Representative to seek wisdom from you with every decision to be made.

Deliver us from our enemies, grant protection to our citizens, and forever allow this nation to be a beacon of freedom and peace so that your name will forever be honored on the earth.

Hear our prayer, O God, and continue to bless America. We pray, Amen.
