One Minute Speech Given in Recognition of the Guest Chaplain:

Mr. CRANE. Mr. Speaker, it is my honor today to welcome Pastor Deborah Logan as our guest chaplain. Pastor Logan serves as a co–pastor at the Christian Faith Fellowship Church in Zion, Illinois, with her husband, Pastor James E. Logan .

In 1994, Pastor Logan and her husband, James, were ordained and installed as first assistant pastors of the Christian Faith Fellowship Church Waukegan. Three years later, she and James took the helm as pastors in the same church, now known as the Christian Faith Fellowship Church Zion.

Since then Pastor Logan and her husband have worked together to build a church in the North Shore area to uplift and encourage families through spiritual guidance and fellowship. These days the ministry continues to experience phenomenal growth as the vision of strong families led by strong spirit–filled men in their rightful place in the home is fulfilled.

I have had the privilege to join them at one of their services, and it was a joyous and uplifting experience.

Pastor Logan and her husband have been married for 15 years, and together they have two beautiful children, Cameron James and Llexis Charity.

I thank Pastor Logan for her continued dedication to her church, her community, and our country. I deem it an honor and privilege to welcome Pastor Deborah Logan to the United States House of Representatives.

Opening Prayer Given by the Guest Chaplain:

I exhort and encourage first of all that supplication, prayer , intercession and giving of thanks be made for all men. I pray for this Nation, our President, his cabinet and assistants, governors, Senators, Congress, judges, military and intelligence agencies and all those that are in authority that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all Godliness and honesty.

I pray that in all their ways they acknowledge You, that You Lord, will lead, guide and direct them in their affairs facing our Nation and give the President divine wisdom and strength to make sound decisions when faced with crisis.

I pray for Congress as they confer about the common wealth of their perspective region. Give them divine wisdom, knowledge, insight and understanding on how to effect change and make the proper changes for generations to come. I pray for divine safety and protection for them and their families. I pray for divine health and healing over their entire bodies, spiritually, physically, mentally and emotionally. I pray that they have sound and happy marriages, children and families. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds.

Blessed is the nation whose God is Lord. Amen.
