  The Chaplain, Dr. Lloyd John Ogilvie, offered the following prayer:
  In our prayer this morning, let us think magnificently about God so 
that we may serve Him magnanimously throughout the day.
  O God, whose love never lets us go, whose mercy never ends, whose 
strength is always available, whose guidance shows us the way, whose 
spirit provides us supernatural power, whose presence is our courage, 
whose joy invades our gloom, whose peace calms our pressured hearts, 
whose light illuminates our path, whose goodness provides the wondrous 
gifts of loved ones, family, and friends, whose will has brought us to 
the awesome tasks of this Senate today, and whose calling lifts us 
above party politics to put You and the good of our Nation first, we 
dedicate all that we have and are to serve You today with unreserved 
faithfulness and unfailing loyalty.
  To God be the glory. Amen.
