Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

God our Creator and Guide, as this House seeks to participate in Your own loving care for our people, grant its Members likewise a participation in Your wisdom, prudence, and perseverance in good.

Rouse in their hearts a humble reverence for those who have gone before us and joyous hope for the future.

In particular, excite in their deliberation a lively concern for the most vulnerable among us so that each and every person may be assured of needed comfort when their hour of need inevitably comes.

We ask these and all other blessings in accord with Your will for these United States of America.
