                                 PRAYER

  The Chaplain, the Reverend Patrick J. Conroy, offered the following 
prayer:
  Eternal God, we give You thanks for giving us another day.
  Guide the Members of the people's House by the spirit of 
understanding, which will lead them ultimately to eternal wisdom. Since 
we live in a world of human failure and broken promises, may they be 
tolerant of the faults of others because they are so aware of their own 
unfaithfulness. All of us are yet to realize our own full potential as 
being truly the free children of God.
  Bless all with a quiet respect for the diversity of opinions. Through 
honest dialogue and contemplative listening, may Your servants, 
gathered in this assembly, search all the avenues open to them to meet 
today's challenges of integrity and justice.
  May all that is done this day be for Your greater honor and glory.
  Amen.
