Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

Holy God, Giver of Peace and Author of Truth, we acknowledge Your rule over our lives and the life of this Nation. We know You have plans for us and the power to make them happen. Give our representatives a vision of Your will for America today. Help us to always remember that we serve a great people and hold a sacred trust on their behalf. May we see that no Nation lives for itself alone, but is responsible to You for the well–being of Your creation. Now, let Your blessing rest upon this House, its leadership, its dedicated Members and staff, and of course this very great country. All this we pray in Your most gracious name. Amen.
