Reverend Dr. Alan Keiran

Office of the Senate Chaplain

Date of Prayer: 06/09/2011

Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

Lord God Almighty, as the Psalmist says, "Your unfailing love, O Lord, is as vast as the heavens; Your faithfulness reaches beyond the clouds. Your righteousness is like the mighty mountains, your justice like the ocean depths." (Psalm 36:5–6)

Lord God, I pray you will reward the faithfulness of all who honor Your name and seek to bring You glory. Make known Your plans to prosper them; plans not to harm them, but to give them hope and a bright future. Inspire our elected leaders to seek Your presence and pray daily for Your wisdom. Let them clearly discern Your still small voice amidst the constant clamor of their busy lives.

In the long legislative days ahead, may they feel Your favor as they faithfully discharge the duties assigned to them. Give them the strength to persevere in the storms of life and the humility to honor You when victories burst forth like a radiant dawn. I pray in Your might Name. Amen.
