Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

O God, who calls all people to live together in love and to seek reconciliation with each other in times of conflict:

Inspire in us the will to persevere in accomplishing Your vision for the good of creation.

Comfort our fellow citizens who grieve, experience daily injustice, and suffer in mind, body, or spirit.

During this session of the 114th Congress, in this, the people's House, may the hearts of the duly elected Representatives be blessed with the integrity of purpose and the steadfast commitment to seek and serve the people of the United States of America for the betterment of this country and the world.

We ask this all in the name of the one God, the God of all nations.
