Reverend Dr. Ronald Christian

Lutheran Social Services

Date of Prayer: 04/10/2000

Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

O God, with these words and our thoughts, we acknowledge Your almighty power and recognize our ultimate dependence on Your great mercy.

So we pray, deliver us in Your might this day from callous hearts so that we may be agents of your goodness and orderlies of Your compassion.

Grant that from Your great storehouse of grace, we may receive the blessings of seasonal weather for the spring planting, comity for all communities in their life together, and joy in our pursuit of liberty and justice for all.

Gracious God, dispose our days and our deeds in Your peace.
