Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

Let us pray:

Our Father who art in Heaven, we stand before thee as the world faces very dangerous and troubling times. We seek Thy Blessing and guidance for Peace and Tranquility for all mankind.

Bless Thou our glorious land of liberty, our leaders and these representatives, who are charged with the great responsibility of directing the affairs of our nation. May Thy spirit dwell richly within them as they manifest abiding courage and sincere faith, in the cherished traditions of our founding fathers, to work for freedom, justice and peace. Grant them loving kindness and patience, understanding and foresight so that they will ever be warmed by Thy love and nurtured by Thy Teachings.

May the United States of America under God remain a citadel of freedom and a watchtower from which rays of light and hope shall be beamed to those who are now living in darkness and despair. Hasten the day when the great hope of universal peace will prevail throughout the world with justice and freedom for all people.
