[Pages H10319-H10320] From the Congressional Record Online through the Government Publishing Office [www.gpo.gov] PRAYER Brother Thomas More Garrett, Dominican House of Studies, Washington, D.C., offered the following prayer: Dear God, as we enter a time of expectation and new beginnings, help us to direct our minds toward the things that will last. Let us be attentive to why we act and what we seek and how we want our last days to be spent. Give us the space to rest this season in the cell of self-knowledge. Remove the curtains of ignorance that shield us from the light of faith. Open us to transcendent wisdom, and enlighten the dark corners of our neglected hearts and scatter there Your cheerful beams. Amen.NOTICE If the 113th Congress, 2nd Session, adjourns sine die on or before December 24, 2014, a final issue of the Congressional Record for the 113th Congress, 2nd Session, will be published on Wednesday, December 31, 2014, to permit Members to insert statements.
