  The Chaplain, the Reverend Patrick J. Conroy, offered the following 
  Loving God, we give You thanks for giving us another day.
  We thank You for Your ongoing presence and sustaining grace in us all 
and Your concern for our Nation. Continue to bless and inspire the 
Members of the people's House.
  May they be encouraged in the movement that has occurred, and may the 
hopes and prayers of the American people, and indeed the world, that a 
break in our current impasse may be imminent be fulfilled.
  Forgive our failures, our lack of faith. May the good intentions of 
all acting in this House be rewarded by solutions to our struggles that 
benefit our Nation.
  May all that is done be for Your greater honor and glory.
