Sponsor: Rep. Paul Gosar, (R-AZ)
Date of Prayer: 05/03/2017

Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

May we humbly ask You, God Almighty, to help us focus on the beauty and good of this great country.

God, we thank You for giving wisdom to Presidents George W. Bush, Barack Obama, and Donald J. Trump for proclaiming May as Jewish Heritage Month.

The Jewish people of this country are grateful and indebted to You, God, for the opportunity to contribute in making the United States a great nation.

Aish founder, Rabbi Noah Weinberg, of blessed memory, would say to young people: "When older people see your idealism, they might say,'you'll grow up,' but what they really mean is 'you'll give up.'" Rabbi Weinberg would say: "Never give up––get tougher instead."

Let us pray for the Members of Congress and this great Nation: God, please grant us clarity and courage to always do right and never give up on our principles.

God bless the United States of America.
