                                 prayer

  The Chaplain, Dr. Barry C. Black, offered the following prayer:
  Let us pray.
  Lord God, You open to us horizons of hope through faith's resources. 
Let Your grace undergird our Senators' lives, as You fill their days 
with a knowledge of Your will. Guide them to solutions that best honor 
You, as they find in You a resource for every need. Deepen their desire 
to please You, opening to them new opportunities to obey Your commands. 
Strengthen their worthy desires and be for them a shelter in the storm. 
May they grow in grace and in knowledge of You.
  We pray in Your strong Name. Amen.
