  The Chaplain, Dr. Barry C. Black, offered the following prayer:
  Let us pray.
  Eternal God, our help in ages past and hope for years to come, we 
honor Your Name.
  Today, have mercy upon us. According to Your loving kindness and 
tender mercies, have Your way in this Chamber and in the hearts of our 
lawmakers. Lord, our Senators are the clay, and You are the divine 
potter. Using Your wisdom, mercy, and might, mold and make our 
legislators to be instruments of Your divine purposes. Give them the 
courage and wisdom to surrender and yield to the unfolding of Your 
unstoppable providence as they acknowledge that our times are in Your 
  We pray in Your sovereign Name. Amen.
