Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

Let us pray.

Lord God, we extol Your great Name, for you alone deserve our worship and unwavering allegiance.

We thank You for the gifts of meaningful labor, loving families and freedom to worship.

We thank You as well, for Your ultimate sacrifice which brings us hope for bright tomorrows.

Father, we humbly commend to Your abiding care those among us who are facing the challenges of age, health and the loss of loved ones.

May Your presence illumine the hearts of all who seek to bring You glory and long for Your loving presence.

We pray as well that You will empower our Legislators and their staffs with the wisdom and tenacity needed to solve the seemingly intractable issues facing our country and our world.

Give them the strength to endure long hours of labor with a positive sense of accomplishment.

Finally, we pray for all those in harm’s way and their families.

May You watch over them and protect them with Your abiding presence. In Your mighty Name I pray, Amen.
