                                 PRAYER

  The Chaplain, the Reverend Patrick J. Conroy, offered the following 
prayer:
  God of the universe, we give You thanks for giving us another day.
  The House returns from a long recess meeting with constituents, as 
concerns about a myriad of issues reveal the considerable divisions 
both in Congress and among the American populace as well.
  Horrendous acts of religious violence also occupy our attention and 
concern. You alone triumph over death and sin, for You alone are holy 
and eternal.
  Prove Your victory in us. Take this Nation and make it Your own. With 
leadership from this body of Congress, raise up a people who are 
unafraid to look into the face of darkness, and by will, science, and 
prayer, push back the door of death. Strengthen our human frailty, that 
we may continue to fight against evil and become a nation of hope and a 
people of virtue.
  May all that is done this day be for Your greater honor and glory.
  Amen.
