  The Chaplain, Dr. Barry C. Black, offered the following prayer:
  Let us pray.
  Almighty God, author of liberty, to You we lift our hearts in prayer. 
Long may our land be bright with freedom's holy light; protect us by 
Your might, great God our King.
  Give to our lawmakers the wisdom to know the role they should play in 
keeping freedom's holy light bright. As they seek to be responsible 
stewards of their calling, keep them from the paths that lead to ruin. 
May the words of their mouths and the meditations of their hearts be 
acceptable to You.
  We pray in Your sacred Name. Amen.
