Reverend Dr. Alan Keiran

Office of the Senate Chaplain
Washington, DC

Date of Prayer: 09/26/2011

Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

Let us pray:

Lord God Almighty, You command us to trust in You with all our hearts and not lean on our own understanding. You ask us to acknowledge You above all others and when we do You promise to make our paths straight.

Lord, the limits of worldly wisdom won't illuminate a clear path on which our leaders may tread with assurance of Your favor. So I pray that You will pour a generous portion of Your divine wisdom and power into each Representative's life.

Equip them with faith that sees into the future. Hope that unburdens their hearts and minds. And the assurance that You, Lord God, still reign on Your throne and will help this great nation and its citizens experience Your blessings when we turn our hearts to You alone.

Father God, restore peace to the fearful and joy to those burdened by the cares of life. And, be with those in harm's way and their families. This I ask in the Name above every name. Amen.
