  The Chaplain, Dr. Barry C. Black, offered the following prayer:
  Let us pray.
  Eternal God, our sustainer, it is time to pray and, in the silence of 
this moment, examine our hearts. Lord, You know our thoughts and see 
where we fall short of Your glory. Restore us to Your purposes as You 
lead us in the path everlasting.
  Search the hearts of our Senators. You know the struggles that 
confront them, the things they wrestle with, the things that irritate 
and gnaw at them and cause them to abandon trust in You.
  O God, You know us better than we know ourselves. Search our hearts 
and give us Your peace.
  We pray in Your loving Name. Amen.
