Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

O Lord, on the House side of the U.S. Capitol is the frieze titled The Apotheosis of Democracy, depicting the horn of plenty with which you have blessed our country and the industriousness of those responsible for it.

As we enter the season of summer, we pray that You bless those here who govern and the governed with Your divine wisdom needed to continue the awe–inspiring prosperity with which You have provided us.
