Sponsor: Rep. Karen Bass, (D-CA)
Date of Prayer: 09/17/2019

Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, Amen.
Lord, make me an instrument of Your peace,
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
Where there is injury, pardon;
Where there is doubt, faith;
Where there is despair, hope;
Where there is darkness, light;
Where there is sadness, joy.
O Divine Master, grant that I may not so much seek to be consoled as to console, to be understood as to understand, to be loved as to love.
For it is in giving that we receive; it is in pardoning that we are pardoned; and it is in dying that we are born to eternal life.
We pray for peace in the world.
We pray that our hands and hearts be stretched out in compassion and in the service of others.
You remind us, "Whoever wants to be first must take last place and be the servant of everyone else."
Lord, make us an instrument of Your peace.
In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, Amen.
