One Minute Speech Given in Recognition of the Guest Chaplain:

Ms. HERRERA BEUTLER. Mr. Speaker, it is my great honor to introduce my pastor and dear friend, Bob MacGregor, as our guest chaplain this

Pastor Bob is the lead pastor of City Harvest Church in Vancouver,
Washington, my home church. City Harvest is a thriving church that
greatly impacts our community by caring for the needy and supporting
mission work.

Pastor Bob and his wife, Sue, have four daughters and eight grandchildren. They have been married for 38 years and share a burden to help build marriages and families of ministers who face the demands of ministry life.

It is my great pleasure to welcome Pastor Bob and thank him as he has
blessed us this morning with his prayer.

Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

Lord, we come today with thanksgiving for the work of Your grace in establishing this at work called America.

Known around the world as the Nation of opportunity, many fight to become a part of us and few desire to leave because You, Lord, have
made us great.

Our Founding Fathers understood this by experience and by the Scriptures "that except the Lord builds the House, they labor in vain who build it." So it has been our deep conviction from our conception
to daily appeal to You for wisdom to guide the leaders of this great Nation.

So, once again, we ask for the wisdom to protect all our citizens, provide opportunity for all, help our poor, care for our elderly, secure our families, educate our children, and make our economy strong.

We pray for unity in this endeavor. May righteousness exalt us through all our laws. This we ask respectfully in Jesus' name. Amen.
