Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

Our Lord God, the Sovereign over this great and wonderful Nation in which we live, we come to You humbly today. Thank You for the opportunity to lead the people of this United States of America.

Be present, O God of Wisdom, and direct the councils of this honorable United States House of Representatives. Give insight, understanding, and discernment to each Member so they can exercise their duties for the betterment of their districts and this Nation. May we all be reminded that righteousness exalts a Nation. As these dedicated legislators meet in this Chamber or elsewhere, may their every decision, their every judgement, and their every action be said and done in righteousness. Their job is great, but You, the Almighty, give grace and direction as we ask for help.

Be pleased to grant strength and comfort to these leaders and their families. We ask in Your Name.
