The Office of the Chaplain United States House of Representatives

Reverend Dominic Langevin, O.P.

Dominican House of Studies
Washington, DC

Date of Prayer: 05/08/2015

Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

God, our Father, order our distracted minds to Yourself. Help us to be humble, knowing that all works are worthwhile only insofar as they come from You and are oriented back to You.

Bless the work of this House. Strengthen its Members to build bonds that will last: bonds of collaboration among themselves, bonds of fraternity and opportunity in our land, bonds of peace on our planet.

May the cooperation of these elected servants free us all for virtuous excellence rather than the ease of wantonness or the doldrums of indifference.

And, loving Father, as we celebrate Mother's Day this weekend, accept our thanks for the love that You have shown us through our mothers. May we cherish the dignity and sacrifices of those women whom You have called to bear and sustain life.

Through Jesus Christ, the Lord.
