Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

 O Lord, the Gospel of St. Matthew proclaims: "Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness, for they shall be blessed.''
O Lord, may our U.S. Congress be blessed in pursuing righteousness and the virtue of peace it procures.
May Your guidance bless it with wisdom that enables the U.S. Congress to hunger and thirst for newly formulated means that generate order and the tranquility peace produces.
May our Nation be a shining example to the world of our desire for
peace and prosperity for all. Amen.
