                                 PRAYER

  The Chaplain, the Reverend Patrick J. Conroy, offered the following 
prayer:
  God of mercy, thank You for giving us another day. Give us the 
resolve to bring an end to hunger in our world.
  Quicken our spirits so that we will know the blessings of living 
together in unity and peace. We all have our personal aspirations and 
ideas of what is best. Grant that we might know the satisfaction of 
sharing our common concerns and experience the joy of mutual 
accomplishment.
  Bless the Members of the people's House with success in bringing 
fruition to all efforts to work toward common solutions to the issues 
facing our Nation, solutions which often seem so distant.
  During the days of the coming week, may the American people be able 
to communicate their hopes for the efforts of their Congressmen and -
women. May they understand as well that a unified Nation is equally the 
work of each of us where we live.
  May all that is done this day be for Your greater honor and glory.
  Amen.
