Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

Yours, O Lord, is the greatness, the power, the glory, the victory, and the majesty. Everything in the heavens and on Earth is Yours, O Lord, and this is Your kingdom. We adore You as the one who is over all things. Wealth and honor come from You alone. Power and might are in Your hand. At Your discretion, people are made great and given strength.

Heavenly Father, Savior, and friend, I am humbled to pray within these historic halls. By Your divine appointment, Members of this House have been selected to represent the precious mosaic of people across our Nation. Lord, bless our leaders. Make Your face to shine upon them and give them strength. May every decision made here pass carefully under the scrutiny of Your holy standards.

Bless our deployed soldiers, airmen, sailors, coastguardsmen, marines, and their families. Heal and restore our veterans.
