Reverend Lisa Wink Schultz

Office of Senate Chaplain
Washington, DC

Date of Prayer: 10/01/2021

Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

Holy God, break forth Your light in this place. May we bask in the warmth of Your gracious care and in You may we find strength.
Be our guide. Satisfy our need in the heat of the worst of our moments. Where there is a desert of hope, replenish our souls; make strong our bodies with the certainty of Your protection.
In Your mercy renew us like a well–watered garden. Be to us an oasis whose waters never fail.
Then may we be restored and be ready, once again, to care for those You have called us to serve, responsive to the vastness of need we see before us.
We follow You in faith and in Your name we pray. Amen.
