  With humble hearts, let us pray.
  Gracious God, You make us stewards of Your creation so that in all 
things we may honor the gift of life which You bestow on us each day.
  We pray for these our elected officials as they work to perform the 
sacred mission of service taken up on behalf of all the citizens of 
this Nation that thirsts for God. Guide them with good judgments in the 
exercise of their duties. May Your spirit of wisdom abide with them in 
shaping a more benevolent world according to Your great love, and may 
the hearts of Your people, especially these present, be open to the 
needs of all our brothers and sisters.
  We pray in Your great Name. Amen.
