                                 prayer

  The Chaplain, Dr. Barry C. Black, offered the following prayer:
  Let us pray.
  Eternal God, we are indebted to You for Your many mercies and 
continue to look to You for our well-being. Remind us that prayer is 
listening more than speaking, an act of empathy rather than self-
expression.
  Give our Senators this day the special gifts of wisdom and 
understanding, patience and strength, motivating them to follow what is 
true and do what is right. Lord, inspire our lawmakers with a renewed 
trust in You and a commitment to work together for Your glory.
  We pray in Your sacred Name. Amen.
