Date of Prayer: 03/29/2018

Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

Compassionate God, source of all life, we thank You for the gift of the people we represent, for strength of mind and body, and for the blessing of freedom in our country.

During these days for recess, a time when our work and rest meet us elsewhere, when many of our citizens mark religious holidays, and when the winter months give way to spring, send Your spirit to renew us, to help us learn from the history we inherited, to sustain the values which define our homeland, to work for a more just future, sensitive to the weakest among us.

We pray with the hope that when we work for unity and peace, we see a little more heaven among us.
