  Loving God, we give You thanks for giving us another day.

[[Page H191]]

  Bless the Members of this assembly as they set upon the important 
work that faces them. Help them to make wise decisions in a good manner 
and to carry their responsibilities steadily with high hopes for a 
better future for our great Nation.
  May they be empowered by what they have heard during their home 
district visits to work together. May they realize that each of them 
represents voters who side with their opponents, and that there are 
millions of Americans who voted for their opponents as well. The work 
to be done must benefit all Americans. Give them courage to make 
difficult choices when they are faced with them.
  May Your blessing, O God, be with them and with us all this day and 
every day to come, and may all we do be done for Your greater honor and 
glory.
  Amen.
