Reverend Rachel Landers Vaagenes

Capitol Hill Presbyterian Church
Washington, DC

Date of Prayer: 06/28/2022

Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

Dear God, may we be reminded today that our universe is made of love.

I ask that this life–giving love be manifest today in the hearts and minds of these Representatives of the American people, both those who are gathered in this Chamber today, and those who are away.
To be a Representative of the people is a great gift. May these public servants be honorable stewards of the trust and responsibility that they have received. May they work together for the common good of our country. May they come to their work with generosity of spirit and creativity of mind.
Today and every day, may this body be a reflection of love and care and righteousness. May the work done today contribute to the building up of our Nation and all who reside here, and indeed may it bless our whole world.   Amen.
