Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

O Lord God,
I thank you that we can take a moment to acknowledge that there is one that is greater than all the governments and power of man.
Thou art worthy to receive glory, honor and power.
Lord, as you guide the course of all creation and the events of mankind throughout history, may we willingly be in submission to your mighty hand.
Fill us with love, joy, peace, long–suffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, and temperance.
Lord, raise up leaders here that you can show yourself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward you.
Give us your wisdom to solve our problems.
Give us your power to overcome our enemies.
Give us your compassion to meet people’s needs.

In the name of my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, who gives me freedom from the bondage of sin, liberty to stand for what is right and the reason to live.
