[Page H3772] From the Congressional Record Online through the Government Publishing Office [www.gpo.gov] 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. ____________________
