Reverend Meg Saunders

Anglican Church of North America

Date of Prayer: 10/13/2015

Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

Almighty God, we come before You this afternoon with praise on our lips. We thank You that You are a God of redemption and hope.

From the prophet Isaiah You tell us that You have good news for the poor. You comfort those of us with broken hearts. You release us from our despair and addictions, and most strikingly, You give us a crown of beauty for the ashes in our lives.

Today, Lord, as this House meets, guide and direct our leaders. Anoint their minds with Your hope so that they will approach the problems of our Nation with Your vision of redemption, knowing that all things are possible with You.

Loving God, we dedicate this day to You, for the honor and glory of Your name.
