Date of Prayer: 02/21/2012

Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

God of perfect power and endless love, within these walls decisions are made that influence the whole world, but it is within the human heart that You do some of Your very best work.

So open each heart here to You;

Tune each set of ears to hear Your still small voice within;

Open each pair of eyes to see You in one another and especially in those with whom we disagree;

Protect each soul from predictable and unexpected temptations;

And excite each mind to the vastness of Your great possibility so that our work here today will reflect the breadth of Your love for each child we represent from our own districts and each individual around the globe without any representation.

We ask these things with abundant gratitude for the awesome opportunity to be used as instruments of Your healing and hope.
