  The Chaplain, Dr. Barry C. Black, offered the following prayer:
  Let us pray.
  Eternal God, the source of our joy, thank You for hearing our 
prayers, for Your mercy is unending. Strengthen our lawmakers that they 
may grow in grace and increase in their knowledge of You. Give them 
courage to cry out against injustice, to lift burdens, and to break 
fetters. May they strive to transform dark yesterdays into bright 
tomorrows. Lord, remind them that Your favor has a lifetime guarantee. 
Use our Senators as instruments of Your glory. May Your peace go with 
them as they see to do Your will on Earth, even as it is done in 
  We pray in Your loving Name. Amen.
