Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

O God, You who have been our refuge in every generation,

I thank You for granting truths self–evident and endowing us, our Creator, with certain unalienable rights: life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, our freedom.

Help this body to remember that our freedom was bought with a price, the blood of our heroes, and defense of our freedom comes at the same terrible price.

Grant the members of this body: wisdom as they legislate; freedom from partisan politics; unity, not division; and remembrance that they serve "Of the people, by the people and for the people" under God.

Help each Representative to represent: the people, not politics; morality, not mores; sacrifice, not self–interest; right, not flight; defense, not defeat.

Lord, comfort the families of our fallen.

Grant the troops defending our precious freedoms would: live under the protection of the Most High, be Your servant for good, and be granted overwhelming victory in the Global War on Terror.

For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever.
