Senate Prayer - January 8

The Chaplain, Dr. Barry C. Black, offered the following prayer:
  Eternal God, we thank You and praise Your Name because of Your 
goodness and mercy to us and our Nation. You are robed in majesty, and 
we look to You to establish us and keep us strong.
  Today, provide our lawmakers with Your guidance so that they will 
accomplish Your will. May they never presume upon Your generous 
provisions or live as if they are independent of You. Lord, infuse them 
with Your love, wisdom, and power as they seek to speak words of 
healing and hope.
  Today we ask You to extend Your mercy to the people of France as they 
deal with the tragic terror attack.
  We pray in Your merciful Name. Amen.
