Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

God, our Father, You guide everything in wisdom and love. ‘‘You are good and forgiving, full of love to all who call upon You.''

We now praise You for that love and rejoice in Your abundant blessings. You call us today to grow in the knowledge of that love and invite us to receive Your blessing.

Accept the prayers we offer for our beloved Nation. Protect it and keep it ever in Your sight.

Fill this House of Representatives with Your holy wisdom. Strengthen these Representatives and their staffs as they labor for what is good and just.

May true harmony, lasting freedom, and justice be secured for all so that there may be lasting peace.

We ask this in Your most holy name.
