The Office of the Chaplain United States House of Representatives

Reverend Dr. Brian Lee

Christ Reformed Church
Washington, DC

Date of Prayer: 04/30/2013

Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

Creator, God, merciful and just.

You dwell above in holiness, a father to the fatherless, protector of widows and orphans. Dear Lord, rescue the weak and needy. Deliver them from the hand of the wicked.

Give wisdom to this body. You hold all things in Your almighty hand, and You have established this House of Representatives and every governing authority as Your servants that they might protect the defenseless, praise those who do good and punish those who do evil.

Preserve and protect our President.

Humble all these Your servants with Your holy law, which You shine forth in all our hearts. Help them to seek peace.

You are a God who saves. Convict us of all our sins that we might know deliverance from these our wicked ways.

Hear this prayer for the sake of the merits of Your only Son, the crucified and risen Lord, Jesus Christ.
