Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

Father God, thank You for the rich blessings You've lavished on the United States of America.

We are so unworthy of Your grace and Your mercy. Today, we pray for the men and women of the United States House of Representatives.

Give them great wisdom, protection, and steadfast resolve. In their personal lives we ask that You replace turmoil with peace, bitterness with joy, and doubt with encouragement.

For our country, Father, we ask that You give us a renewed sense of gratitude, an unquenchable zeal for serving those who are in need, and unity toward the common purpose of liberty.

Above all else, Father, we honor You today. We humbly intercede on behalf of our country and her leaders.

In Jesus' name, Amen.
