The Office of the Chaplain United States House of Representatives

Reverend Dr. Barry C. Black

United States Senate

Date of Prayer: 05/12/2006

Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

Our gracious redeemer, we have loved you, but not enough. We have sought you, but not diligently. We have seen, but not perceived. We have heard, but not understood. We have desired things heavenly, but clung to things on earth. Strengthen the members of this body to do your will. As they learn to love, seek, perceive, desire, and understand your will give them the peace that comes from trusting you. We pray in your holy name. Amen.
