Pastor Ryan Hodges

Dear Heavenly Father, in Jesus' name, I want to thank You for today. Thank You for salvation.

The Bible says, in 1 Timothy 2:1–2: "I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks be
made for all men; for kings and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty."

Thank You for the Members of this House, the men and women of this Congress, and for their families. I pray for their work, their wisdom,
and their walk.

I pray that You would forgive us our sins as individuals and as a nation. I am truly grateful that Jesus said: "...and him that cometh to me I will in no wise cast out."

Please help us to glorify You this day with our lives. Thank You for America.

In Jesus' name, amen.
