One Minute Speech Given in Recognition of the Guest Chaplain:

Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

Gracious and awesome God, we come before You today on behalf of the men and women who serve in this Chamber, their teams, and their families.

May You bring peace and clarity to their minds so that they can hear Your voice and each other's voices. May You provide them with words and concepts that will bring understanding and growth. May You open their eyes to genuine need and stir their spirits to act swiftly in prudence and creativity. Help them to forge a path forward together.

Protect them from destruction and direct them around pits and traps set by those who would seek to bring chaos. Fill their hearts with courage and their souls with conviction because hope is never lost for those whose trust is in the Lord. Give them resolve to finish the journey You started them on, and may You grant them a glimpse of the fruit that their righteous work is producing.

Thank You for being a God who hears us. I pray all this in the mighty name of Jesus. Amen.
