  Reverend Richard Haynes, Salem Missionary Baptist Church, Lilburn, 
Georgia, offered the following prayer:
  Our Father in heaven, we thank You for a brand-new day and for all of 
the opportunities and possibilities that comes with this day.
  We thank You for another opportunity to be better. Thank You for 
another blessed opportunity to do better. We thank You for yet another 
chance to correct mistakes and make critical legislative adjustments 
for the betterment of this country and the world.
  With a heart of gratitude for the many possibilities that this day 
brings, we declare with the Psalmist David that we will rejoice and be 
glad in it. May our rejoicings manifest themselves in good works that 
others may see, that You may be glorified.
  In the name of Your darling Son, we pray.
