Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

Lord of all, this moment is not a moment that any of us would have chosen, but You have chosen us for this moment.

Bless those who have been given great responsibility with great compassion for all people who will be affected by their decisions, with great wisdom to see beyond what is merely in the short term, with great courage to do what is right even when it is difficult or unpopular, with great magnanimity in how they treat one another, and with the gift of grace and love which carries us all when we put our trust and faith in You.

I pray Your blessing upon each one of us as we seek to do Your will this day, that our works may be pleasing in Your sight.

In Your name we pray. Amen.
