Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

Dear God,

In this moment may we encounter a fresh experience with You.

Give us peace in the uncertainty of this election season and renewed strength as we remember those who sent us here. We know in our hearts that without Your guidance we can do nothing, but with You we can do all things.

Let us not be afraid of the problems that challenge us but instead be grateful that You have called us to make a difference at this time in history.

I pray Your blessings of health, happiness and protection upon each member of the United States House of Representatives, their families and staff members as well.

In times of frustration may we know that You are with us and ready to help, if we will ask.

May we be emboldened by the thought that as individuals we represent various cities, counties and states but together we stand for the greatest Nation ever created.

In Jesus’ Name.
