  Chaplain Amber Murrell, United States Air Force, Arlington Cemetery, 
Arlington, Virginia, offered the following prayer:
  Almighty God, we come to You asking You grant us humility of heart 
and sobriety of mind as we lead the people You have entrusted to us.
  Grant our Representatives wisdom from above and a steady resolve to 
administer justice over the land and people they have been appointed. 
Fill them with hope and dogged determination to work as if they are 
working for You and usher in Your Kingdom come.
  And as the distractions and demands of life flood their day, create 
eddies for them to rejuvenate and refocus so they may faithfully 
discharge the duties of the office they fill. Encourage and strengthen 
  May they enjoy Your shalom even as they face the ever-present 
daunting tasks before them. Please surround them with trusted 
companions and sagacious advisers that know and trust in You.
  Jehovah Rophi, the God who heals, please heal our land. May we, these 
United States of America, truly be one nation under God, indivisible, 
with liberty and justice for all. But above all, may each and every one 
of us truly grasp Your great and everlasting love. So, as we go about 
our day and every day, I pray we go give `em Heaven.
  In the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.
