Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

God of peace, who called all people from every nation to seek reconciliation with each other for the good of creation, inspire in us the will to persevere, through moments of conflict, to seek common ground.
Bless this country and all its leaders in the continued fulfillment of the vision set forth in July of 1776 that all people are “endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.”
During this session of the 112th Congress in this, the people’s House, may the hearts of these duly elected representatives be blessed with the integrity of purpose and the steadfast commitment to seek and serve the people of the United States of America for the betterment of this country and the world.
We ask this all in the name of the one God, the God of all nations. Amen.
