The Office of the Chaplain United States House of Representatives

Reverend Erin M. Keys

Capitol Hill Presbyterian Church
Washington, DC

Date of Prayer: 07/03/2018

Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

God of love, God of mercy, God of justice, we pray Your blessing upon the work of the representatives of our country. May they govern with wisdom and insight. May they lead with truth and courage. May they listen as much as they speak, both to one another and to You. For Your voice is rarely in thunder and mighty proclamations but in the stillness, in the quiet, in the moments when we pause long enough to hear our hearts beating and to listen to where they ask us to go and what they ask us to do. May Your voice speak again this day, God, and as we celebrate the birth of our Nation tomorrow, may we all remember with gratitude the blessing of calling this country our home. Amen.
