  The Chaplain, Dr. Barry C. Black, offered the following prayer:
  Let us pray.
  Almighty God, Lord of our lives and sovereign of our beloved Nation, 
as we begin this 114th Congress, guide our lawmakers, old and new, on 
the right road. We confess our need for Your supernatural power to 
provide them with insight, innovation, and inspiration to solve the 
problems we face.
  Lord, give to our Senators uncommon guidance as they seek to do what 
is best for this land we love. Enable them to develop a slow 
exploratory wisdom, neither of the heart only nor of the head only, so 
that they will act with an integrity that will bring them to Your 
desired destination. May they not run from disquieting considerations 
but instead claim Your promise that the truth shall set us free.
  We pray in Your omnipotent Name. Amen.
