Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

Blessed is the nation whose God is the LORD.

Almighty God, we praise you for our creation, preservation, and all the blessings of life; but above all, for your immeasurable love in redemption, by your light that has come into the world.

We await that promised day when there will be no more death or misery, injustice or oppression. Until then, guide our nation in paths of righteousness for your name’s sake, and forgive our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.

Direct and prosper the work of this body, that they may ordain for our governance only those things as will please you and further the welfare of all people.

Bestow upon every person here, in both their public and private lives, your amazing grace, that they might abound in every good work.

To you be all praise and honor, glory and power, now and forever. Amen.
