The Office of the Chaplain United States House of Representatives

Reverend William Gurnee

John Paul II Seminary
Washington, DC

Date of Prayer: 02/14/2014

Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

All powerful Lord, as our Nation struggles through the difficulty of winter, we realize that there are forces greater than ourselves. In all things, we are more successful when we humble ourselves before You and each other.

Bless those who have been adversely affected by ice, snow, and cold. May the kindness of strangers and goodness of all Americans quickly restore our Nation to wholeness and holiness.

Bless the Members of this Chamber. May those who serve in this body continue to do so with honor, patience, and genuine care for all Members. Give them wisdom, give them joy in their office, and give them the lasting memory that they have served their country well.

We ask all this in Your Holy Name.
