Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

To the Lord, the Chief Shepherd and Saviour of our Souls:

While Members of Congress are at home in their districts, we pray, give each Member rest. Cause them to lie down in green pastures. Lead them beside the still waters. Restore and refresh their souls. Lead them in the paths of righteousness for Your name's sake and our Nation's benefit.

While other Members are abroad, who may walk through the valley of the shadow of death, let them fear no evil. Assure them that You are near. Let Your rod and Your staff bring comfort.

Prepare a table for all in the presence of their families.

Anoint them with the oil of gladness.

Finally, let them return to this Chamber to follow justice and justice alone so as to live and possess the land the Lord our God has given us.

In Jesus Christ's name, I now pray.
