Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

Almighty God, Loving Father, Prince of Peace, the star studded heavens declare Your glory and the sapphire skies the works of Your hands.

We are gathered here today, Lord, because we have committed ourselves to the service of our Nation. We are grateful for the many freedoms and opportunities we enjoy, yet mindful of the brevity of human life. As we look to the future, help us to know and do Your will, Your way, for Your glory.

Lord, You have blessed our land with fertile soil, years of plenty and hope for bright tomorrows. You have raised up our Nation’s Representatives for a season of fruitful service. May You grant them the opportunity to plant good seeds in good soil and see across this land the tangible fruit of their selfless labor.

And Lord, we pray today for all those who are in Harm’s way and their loved ones, asking that Your mighty hand would protect them and deliver them from evil.

This I pray in the Name of our Redeemer. Amen.
