[Page S2849] From the Congressional Record Online through the Government Publishing Office [www.gpo.gov] prayer The Chaplain, Dr. Barry C. Black, offered the following prayer: Let us pray. Eternal Spirit, You are our dwelling place in all generations. Keep us this day from a moral casualness that leads away from ethical paths. Help our Senators to labor to please You, their most important constituent. Give them wisdom to avoid even the appearance of evil as they strive to live for Your honor. Make them fervent in their pursuit of spiritual fitness so that they will love You with passion and strength. Keep them from vacillating ways and lead them in Your righteousness. As we take refuge in Your providence, use us all as instruments of Your grace to bring relief to a suffering world. Continue to sustain our military men and women in harm's way. We pray in Your strong Name. Amen. ____________________
