O, Lord our God, God of our past, present and future, we look to You today as we begin this session of the United States House of Representatives.
We thank You this afternoon for those who are assembled here.
They have been given a great privilege and an awesome responsibility.
Bestow upon them the wisdom, discernment and knowledge they need.
Be very near to each of them, and may this day be a day of accomplishment.
By Your grace, enable these representatives to continue on the “path to a more perfect Union.” Amen
