  Chaplain Angel Berrios, 308th Military Intelligence Battalion, Fort 
Meade, Maryland, offered the following prayer:
  Our Father in Heaven, we take time at this moment to acknowledge Your 
presence with us here in this congressional Chamber. We realize that 
without You, all our efforts are futile to make good and right 
decisions for the people of the United States. Your word says that not 
a sparrow falls to the ground without You being fully aware, so indeed 
we are convinced of the truth that You govern in the affairs of men.
  Divine Holy Spirit, make Yourself real to us by revealing truth about 
every issue that will be discussed on the floor today. Truth is 
powerful. Truth is necessary. And truth will bring true liberty of 
which our country has so long experienced. I rebuke the deceits of 
darkness that would attempt to deter us from true truth, which is Your 
holy word.
  I ask these things according to Your will; therefore, no doubt You 
hear this prayer. In Your holy name I pray.
