Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

Lord Father, as we appreciate the splendor of a beautiful day, we give You thanks for the opportunity to cherish the freedom that You provide us as citizens of this country.

We thank You for Your grace and mercy which showers us daily. We thank You for friends, loved ones, and for Your eternal sacrifice which has given us hope.

Heavenly Father, I thank You for the men and women of this House, their families, and their staff, who continue to do the work of this country. Grant them the wisdom and strength to make decisions and lead our nation.

May they learn to depend on You for guidance during our most difficult times as a country.

May You will always be done in this land and may Your love abound in our hearts.

I ask all this in the Name above all names, Jesus Christ.
