Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

The Reverend Dr. Alan N. Keiran, Chief of Staff, Office of the U.S. Senate Chaplain, offered the following prayer:

Lord God, our Eternal Father whose majesty fills the universe, we give thanks for Your enduring mercy and steadfast love. We are mindful that every sunrise is a gift and every day an opportunity to honor You in thought, word, and deed.

Gracious Lord, we ask this morning for Your special blessing on our Nation's Representatives and those that so skillfully serve them here in our Nation's Capitol and in home districts. Grant them the wisdom, courage, discernment, and grace needed to nobly discharge their momentous duties.

Lord, may the radiant warmth of Your eternal providence continue to shine upon this great Republic. May all citizens of this noble land know the width, breadth, and depth of Your life–transforming presence.

I pray this in Your Holy Name. Amen.
