                                 PRAYER

  The Chaplain, the Reverend Patrick J. Conroy, offered the following 
prayer:
  Loving God, thank You for giving us another day.
  We thank You on this day for the example of St. Nicholas, who fed the 
hungry, brought hope to the imprisoned, gave comfort to the lost, and 
taught the truth to all.
  May all who work here in the people's House strive to imitate him by 
putting You first in all we do.
  Give us the courage, love, and strength of St. Nicholas so that, like 
him, we may serve You through our service to all our brothers and 
sisters.
  On this eve of December 7, may we be mindful of the great sacrifices 
of many of our ancestors who gave their last full measure while serving 
in our Armed Forces in defense of our Nation. We ask You, O Lord, to 
bless those who serve now and keep them from harm.
  May all that we do be for Your greater honor and glory.
  Amen.
