                                 prayer

  The Chaplain, Dr. Barry C. Black, offered the following prayer:
  Let us pray.
  Holy God, from whom alone all good proceeds, let the graces of faith, 
hope, and love be felt today on Capitol Hill. Lord, You rule all things 
by Your wisdom. May our lawmakers, therefore, look to You for guidance 
and strive to manifest complete subservience to Your will. Continue to 
shower our Senators and their loved ones with Your daily mercies, as 
they grow in grace and true holiness throughout the seasons of their 
lives. May they show their love for You by loving others as You have 
loved humankind. Help them to continue to expect great things from You 
as they continue to attempt great things for You. We pray, in Your 
merciful Name. Amen.
