                                 prayer

  The Chaplain, Dr. Barry C. Black, offered the following prayer:
  Let us pray.
  You have given us much, O God, not because You love us more than 
others but because You have entrusted us with a stewardship. Help us to 
faithfully use our gifts to bless others.
  As Senators today do the work of freedom, may they invest their 
talents in uniting our Nation and world. Guide them toward those 
opportunities that will destroy barriers and remove walls. As they work 
to bring harmony from discord, may they live lives that lead to peace.
  Lord, warm all our hearts with Your love. Enlighten our minds with 
Your truth, and fill our lives with Your power that we may live for 
You. We pray in the name of the Prince of Peace. Amen.
