Reverend Dr. Dan C. Cummins

Capitol Worship

Date of Prayer: 03/16/2020

Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

Heavenly Father, creator of all things, throughout our history have plagues and diseases pillaged our human frailties. Still another leviathan plunders Your children––stealing, destroying, and killing
without prejudice.

We beseech You this morning without timidity, but in all reverence and humiliation, reminding You of Your promise to us, Your children, that if destruction should come in the guise of drought or by the hordes of locusts or the peril of pestilence, and whether it comes with the morning's sun, the noonday heat, or the darkness of night, or whether it comes by nature's chance, man's nefarious deed, or by Your outstretched hand, You promised that if Your people, who are called by Your name, shall humble themselves, pray, seek Your face, and turn from our wicked ways, You will hear us from heaven, forgive our sin, and heal our land.

For this we shall do and plead today, O Lord.

In Jesus' name, amen.
