Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

Using the words of those who have led our Nation in times past and who have been led by their faith:

Gracious God, give us clear minds and good intentions, "with malice toward none, with charity for all. With firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in."

And help us always to remember the limits we face and the One we serve. "With a good conscience our only sure reward, with history as the final judge of our deeds, let us go forth and lead the land and people we love, asking God's blessings and God's help, but knowing that, here on Earth, God's work must truly be our own."
