Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

Almighty God, we give You praise and thanksgiving for the United States of America, birthed on the American creed that You have endowed every person with the inalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. We know that true liberty nor happiness is possible without recourse to Your divine will.

Bless the Members of this governing assembly with the wisdom of discerning Your will concerning our national affairs and help them exercise their powers at the service of the rights of each citizen.

Bless this House and the country it serves with Your protection and peace, You who are source of peace, now and forever. Amen.
