Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

Almighty and Most High God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, You led our forefathers to weave Your presence in the fabric of our nation. Move us also to acknowledge and trust Your presence among us daily. And although we may face many obstacles and adversities, continue to shower us with Your mercy that we may recover.

Today, we thank You for healing our nation from the attack on Pearl Harbor seventy years ago. We are grateful for all those who sacrifice their lives to preserve our freedom. O Lord, may we not squander it. Bless all wounded warriors, veterans and their families. Fill them and us with Your peace and joy this Christmas season.

Give us wisdom and lead us by Your Spirit that the choices made here would result in our country united, an economy restored, and hearts grateful for Your loving care, through Jesus Christ, our Lord. Amen.
