  The Chaplain, Dr. Barry C. Black, offered the following prayer:
  Let us pray.
  Now unto You, O Heavenly Father, be all praise and glory, for You 
have filled our lives with wonderful blessings.
  Give to our Senators the blessing of an inward calm that will enable 
them to thrive during days of gloom. Fill their minds with noble 
thoughts, energizing them to persevere in fulfilling Your purposes. May 
Your peace, passing understanding, dwell in their hearts and minds. 
With deliberate intentionality, help them to seek Your answers to our 
national problems.
  We pray in Your mighty Name. Amen.
