  The Chaplain, the Reverend Patrick J. Conroy, offered the following 
  Gracious God, we give You thanks for giving us another day.
  You have blessed us with all good gifts, and with thankful hearts we 
express our gratitude. You have created us with opportunities to serve 
other people in their need, to share together in respect and affection, 
and to be faithful in the responsibilities we have been given.
  In this moment of prayer, please grant to the Members of this 
people's House the gifts of wisdom and discernment, that in their words 
and actions they will do justice, love with mercy, and walk humbly with 
  As the Members return to their districts, may their constituents meet 
them with respect, honesty, and if need be, challenge that will serve 
as an encouragement to the work they do for our Nation.
  May all that is done be for Your greater honor and glory.
