Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

Let us pray.

Father God, as the challenging winds of change blow across our beloved Nation, we ask You to empower and encourage our leaders. Release in them vibrant faith in your Word and grant them supernatural wisdom to solve the daunting problems facing our country and our world.

Lord God Almighty, only You can lead us out of darkness and into the wonderful light of Your redeeming love. Open our eyes that we may see, and our ears that we may hear what Your Holy Spirit is saying in these trying times. Protect us from the spirit of fear, and anoint us with power, love and sound minds. Establish within us the tenacious resolve needed to overcome any obstacles inspired by the enemy of our souls.

Father, please bless and encourage the members of this House, their families and staff members. As they seek your counsel, speak tender words of encouragement and direction into their hearts. As they study your Word, may they feel renewed and enlightened. And as they worship You, let them experience Your transforming presence and abundant love.

All this I pray in the Name of Him who is the Light of the world. Amen.
