Catholic University of America

Date of Prayer: 08/27/2021

Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

Good and gracious God, we are mindful of Americans around the world who are in harm's way, especially those defending our Nation, first responders, and those in Afghanistan. We pray for their health and their safety.
Grant the deceased eternal rest and consolation to their families. We continue to remember those suffering from the pandemic and especially those who have died and their loved ones.
And for all, we pray for the gift of hope which ultimately finds its source in You. May You dispel the darkness and shine the light of Your grace in this Chamber, around the Nation, and throughout the world.
We pray this in Your holy name.  Amen.
