The Office of the Chaplain United States House of Representatives

Reverend Clete Kiley

Washington, DC

Date of Prayer: 08/09/2010

Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

A world that is restless and filled with many threats;
An economy whose stubborn challenges continue;
A great Nation not quite at peace with itself and its role as a beacon to the people of the world;
An electorate troubled and anxious and even angry;
These are the pressing concerns, O God, that bring this Congress back into session.

We turn to You now to seek your guidance.
We ask You to give us the wisdom to see the right road ahead.
We ask You at this moment for the courage to search heart and conscience so that our actions here will promote the national interest, will reassure our people, and will lead to lasting solutions for the many challenges we face this day.

In our turning for this moment to You, may You turn to us and hear this prayer. May You bless our efforts here and may You continue to bless America. Amen.
