One Minute Speech Given in Recognition of the Guest Chaplain:

Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

We beseech God Almighty, calling upon Him by the Most Noble of His Characteristics. We bear witness in testimony that He is The Sovereign, The Omnipotent, The Exalted, the All Knowing.

God Almighty, we ask that You bestow upon all of our elected officials, guidance and patience, required to carry out the solemn task of legislation before them. Grant them commitment to serve before being served, a sense of fraternity before partisanship, and dedication to the interests of our country before the interests of even their own selves.

The Final Prophet of God, Muhammad (peace be upon him) stated: "The leaders of a people are a representation of their deeds." We ask God Almighty that He make our elected officials true representatives of honesty, equality, and the values that represent the uniqueness of our nation.

We ask You Almighty God, that You look to us with glance of mercy, regardless of gender, ethnicity, religion, or political party.
