Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

Almighty and most compassionate God, during this ordinary pro forma session, remind us of Your extraordinary love:

Your love for each person working in these halls. We give You thanks for their gifts, graces, and sacrifices of time. Be with their families as they are here working for us.

Your love for the common citizen who may never walk these halls but carries the weight of decisions made here. Keep them in the forefront of our minds.

Your love for those in dire need. Use us to speak for those who have no voice.

Your love for each child in our global family, no matter if they call You Abba, Yahweh, Allah, or do not call on You at all. Show us ways to work with one another that we too can represent Your kingdom come on Earth as it is in heaven.

May Your extraordinary love impact each ordinary task this day. In the name of the one who loves us more than we can imagine, amen.
