Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

Heavenly Father,
We come to You in Jesus name on behalf of this great nation.
We ask for your forgiveness of our transgressions, and to thank you for your blessings and favor upon America.
Keep us mindful of your word, "Righteousness exalts a nation: but sin is a reproach to any people."
Grant these representatives wisdom to make decisions to strengthen our nation, motivated more by Your hand than by partisan concern.
Grant them grace to listen to one another with open hearts and minds.
May the clarity and charity of their words reflect respect for their colleagues.
May their decisions of today not become future apologies, but may they be a statement of this Congress´┐Ż character, their firm resolve, and a hope for a better America.
All this we ask in the name of Jesus Christ, your Son, and our Savior.
