One Minute Speech Given in Recognition of the Guest Chaplain:

Mr. ROHRABACHER. Mr. Speaker, it is a great honor today to introduce
to the House our guest chaplain, Becky Tirabassi, co–pastor of the Viewpoint Church in Newport Beach, California.

Becky became a licensed pastor in 2014, when she and her husband, Dr.
Roger Tirabassi, founded the Viewpoint Church. Today, she and her husband give spiritual guidance and personal counseling to members of
the Viewpoint Church, but also to people throughout Orange County
needing personal and spiritual encouragement.

Becky was helping others even before she became a pastor. She is best known as an author of over 15 books, including the best–selling books,
"Change Your Life" and "Little Changes Big Results for Crazy, Busy
Couples." She has appeared many times on national television and
radio, and for over three decades has spoken before groups in nearly
all 50 States, as well as internationally. In addition to her co–
pastorate, she is president of the Becky Tirabassi Change Your Life, Incorporated.

Becky and Roger have one married son, who is a grown man, and he has
just completed a tour as a missionary in Uganda. For that safe return,
we are all grateful.

Mr. Speaker, I ask my colleagues to join me in welcoming Pastor Becky
Tirabassi, and thank her for offering today's opening prayer in the
U.S. House of Representatives.

Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

Father, I pray for the immediate outpouring of Your Holy Spirit on our Nation and leaders.
I pray that not one of us will miss hearing Your voice today.
I pray that we would not neglect to ask for Your wisdom.
I pray that we would not make decisions without asking Your guidance.
Will You go before and behind us?
Will You give us our marching orders?
In this hour of our great need, begin again to help us, as You have in years gone by.
Father, You are the God who does immeasurably more than all we could ask or imagine.
Today, give us the humility to ask for Your help, and the grand moral courage to be agents of change for the good of others and the honor of Your name.
In Your powerful name we ask these things.
