Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

O Lord, who founded the Earth and determined its size; who commanded the morning and shown the dawn its place, we sing with gratitude for the gifts of life and truth.

We humbly beg wisdom and prudence for those who work in this Chamber.

May the laws of this Nation be a mirror of Your will.

Give the Members the virtue of courage in difficult times, the virtue of charity in all times and at the end of the day, the certain knowledge that they have served their country well.

We ask all things in Your Holy Name. Amen.
