Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

Our gracious God, we come today with thanks and gratitude for Your presence, with thanks for this beautiful land we call home, and with thanks for Your guidance as we seek to serve our fellow citizens.

We ask Your blessings for all of those who choose to take up the difficult task of governing, not only those who are elected, but also those who serve as staffers, interns, and volunteers.

Strengthen all of us and help us to show forth the fruits of Your spirit of love, joy, peace, and generosity as we go about our work. Grant us a spirit of compassion and cooperation.

May the peace that passes all understanding guide our hearts and minds in the days to come. Amen.
