Mr. DENHAM. Mr. Speaker, it is my honor today to introduce to the House our guest chaplain, Reverend Marvin Jacobo. Reverend Jacobo is the executive director of City Ministry Network, an incredible organization that is the catalyst for transformation in the city of Modesto, California.
As lifelong Modesto residents, Marvin and his wife, Cheryl, have
continued to minister to thousands of youth in our community, changing lives and bringing people from humble backgrounds to leaders in our community.
Mr. Speaker, I ask my colleagues to join me in welcoming him today.
We thank him for offering this afternoon's prayer in the United States House of Representatives.

Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

Master, I give thanks for our United States of America. I am grateful for every man and woman holding governmental positions of authority.
Make Your truth known to them. Cause them to be men and women of integrity, concerned first and foremost with the common good. Grant them the deepest of insight to solve our most daunting challenges.
I pray that each Member would exercise the humility to discern how to best co–labor with those that might see issues differently than them.
Make their hearts and ears alert to good counsel. Honor each one, Master, for the investment they make participating in this, our representative government. I pray a blessing over their families, acknowledging that they, too, sacrifice for the sake of our country.
May our national proceedings be held in a spirit of mutual respect and civility.
I pray in the name of my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
