                                 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.
  In the final hour of the 115th Congress, we give You thanks for Your 
faithfulness to our Nation. There have been many struggles, many 
sorrows, and yet we are still here and able to give You thanks that 
millions of our citizens live free.
  May the work of the new Congress issue forth with legislation to the 
benefit of our Nation and its citizens, and where the efforts of the 
115th Congress have fallen short, we ask Your forgiveness and the 
forgiveness of all Americans.
  May all that is done this day be for Your greater honor and glory.
  Amen.
