Reverend Gene Hemrick

St. Joseph's Catholic Church
Washington, DC

Date of Prayer: 03/01/2018

Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

Lord, on the east side of our U.S. Capitol stands a statue of peace that is a divine quality of Your love. We pray that You inspire the creativity of our Congress in pursuing peace in a world that is more
hostile than nonviolent. May our Congress embrace Your wisdom for opening hearts in which reconciliation is preferred to strife; a time when lion and lamb will lie down together.
