Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

O Lord, during this season of spring, when You bless the cultivation of our fields and the sustenance which they provide, may You especially bless our Congress and the Nation with the sustenance of wisdom, prudence, faith, hope, and charity.

As the fruits of our soil nourish us with life, may the fruits of the Congress' work strengthen the moral fruits of the country.

At harvest time, may our country be enhanced with the joys of festive, heavenly life, which You intended for us from time eternally.
