Date of Prayer: 01/30/2015

Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

Eternal God, we acknowledge that the Earth is Yours and the fullness thereof; the world and they that dwell therein.

Because of whom You are, we deem it imperative that we seek You for wisdom and guidance as we endeavor to open yet another session of the House during which we shall attend to the interests of the American people.

Help us to temper our conversations with humility and patience as we give due diligence to the work that has been assigned to our hands. May we be imbued with a renewed sense of passion, purpose, and patriotism as we strive to serve this great Nation that we all love.

Bless these, our United States. It is in Your most holy Name we pray.
