[Page S1857] From the Congressional Record Online through the Government Publishing Office [www.gpo.gov] PRAYER The Chaplain, Dr. Barry C. Black, offered the following prayer: Let us pray. Eternal God, empower us today to trust You more fully and to accept our responsibility to bring peace to our Nation. Let that peace begin in our individual lives, creating an oasis of concord in an arid and truculent world. May our Senators bring the music of Your unity to their work, finding creative solutions to intractable problems. Lord, whisper to them words of instruction to help them find wisdom for these challenging days. May they shoulder the responsibilities that come with the privilege of freedom. We pray in Your great Name. Amen. ____________________
