                                 PRAYER

  The Chaplain, the Reverend Daniel P. Coughlin, offered the following 
prayer:
  Lord God, friend of all, but especially the poor and the alienated, 
the widow and the orphan, You are not only the foundation of faith, but 
the model of generosity for Your people.
  Out of Your goodness we are created. Out of Your love we are 
sustained. Out of Your hope for us You give us freedom. Help us 
personally to grow in Your image and likeness.
  May this Nation, under the leadership of this Congress, grow also in 
responsible freedom and generous service to those most in need of 
protection, diligent attention, and steady encouragement.
  We will never fail to meet our responsibilities, Lord, if we are 
truly dedicated to You, the Most High, and give to others as You have 
given to us, if we live with grateful and generous hearts today, now 
and forever. Amen.
