Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

O, God, our help in ages past, our hope for years to come, thank You for the spirit of contentment we can receive from You, bringing quietness and faith to our hearts.

Today, use our lawmakers for Your purposes, enabling them to live worthy of Your name. May the words they speak bring edification and unity, as our legislators build bridges of cooperation. Lord, give them the wisdom to depart from strife, remembering that soft answers turn away anger.

We pray in Your great name. Amen.
