Date of Prayer: 12/01/2011

Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

Let us pray,
Almighty God our Father, because of who you are and the glory that is revealed in your only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, we praise your Holy Name.
Lord, your word declares “if any man lack wisdom let him ask of God that giveth to all men liberally and upbraideth not; and it shall be given him.”
We ask for your unmerited favor upon the lives of every elected member of The House of Representatives to provide the wisdom, knowledge, understanding and courage that will allow their hearts to be filled with the principles of justice, loyalty, compassion, humility and love so that we can continue to be united as one nation under God.
In the name of Him who is able to keep us from falling and present us faultless before the presence of His glory with exceeding joy.
