Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

Almighty God, we lift our hearts and minds to You as we begin today. You are sovereign over all things, but You give us all a share in Your governance over the things of creation and the affairs of humanity.

Thank You for the blessing over this House of Representatives with a privileged position in governing toward the end of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness for the citizens it serves.

We ask Your grace and favor upon each elected official, that unity among them may be realized even amidst diversity, and that their work contribute to the ways of justice for all and peace that is lasting.

Bless all who work and assemble here, and fill this session with Your spirit, that it may result in good fruit for our country in time, and its citizens for eternity. Amen.
