Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

Bishop Alfred A. Owens, Jr., Greater Mount Calvary Holy Church, Washington, DC, offered the following prayer:

Most gracious and everlasting God, we thank You for this, another glorious day that You have allowed us to see, and we honor You for Your undying faithfulness towards us.

Lord, help us to continually hold up the light of Your love, and may we be always mindful of our collective duty to serve each other as we serve You.

Teach us Your ways and lead us in a plain path. Shine Your light upon the road that our Members of Congress must travel. Give them grace and truth to guide their every decision. Unite them under the banner of Your love and allow them to speak with one clarion voice that which You would have them say.

Teach us all to lean on Your everlasting arms, and give us the grace to lead according to Your everlasting Word. Amen.
