Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

God and Lord of all, we acknowledge You to be the shepherd of our national good. Exercise over our people all Your benign sovereignty.

We renew our dedication to the rights and justice with which You have endowed us and recommit ourselves in leading truly virtuous lives. In a particular manner, we undertake to bring about the triumph of the common good, especially for the neediest among us, so far as we are able.

Divine Lord, we offer You our humble actions to obtain the peace and prosperity of all our fellow citizens. In this way, may the reign of Your peace be firmly established in all hearts.
