Commissioner John Busby, National Commander, Salvation Army, Alexandria, Virginia, offered the following prayer :

Almighty God, Creator, Preserver and Governor of all things, we humbly bow before You on behalf of those gathered here; individuals who find pleasure in serving the people of this great country.

With thankful hearts for Your goodness to each of them, we earnestly pray that You will take their minds and give them a new measure of wisdom, take their hearts and fill them with Your love for others, and take their wills and make them more obedient to Your will.

May Your servants here proceed step by step, hour by hour to meet the challenges You have given them so that in the end, the purpose that You have set out for this House of Representatives may be accomplished for the enrichment of people across this land and to Your honor and glory.

This we pray in Your holy name. Amen.
