  The Chaplain, Dr. Barry C. Black, offered the following prayer:
  Let us pray.
  Infinite Spirit, generous giver of life's joys, from Your vantage 
point of eternity, look afresh into our times. Teach our lawmakers to 
serve You as they should so that they will do what is best for our 
Nation and world. As they seek to do Your will, help them to see Your 
glorious image in humanity and search for opportunities to empower 
those on life's margins.
  Lord, inspire our Senators to trust the unfolding of Your loving 
providence so that they will not become weary in doing what is right. 
May they live with such integrity that Your purposes will be 
accomplished on Earth. Remind us all that it is in giving that we 
receive and through dying to self that we are born to eternal life.
  We pray in Your great Name. Amen.
