Senate Prayer - January 9

 The Chaplain, Dr. Barry C. Black, offered the following prayer:
  Let us pray.
  God of greatness, higher than the Heavens, may Your Name be praised. 
Lord, You fill our lives with good things. Fill our lawmakers with a 
reverence for You that will empower them to stand for right, whatever 
the consequences. Influence their thoughts, words, and actions, and 
keep them from the roads that lead to disunity. Lord, give them courage 
and resolve to glorify Your Name as they trust the unfolding of Your 
loving providence. Be their strength and shield this day and always.
  We pray in Your powerful Name. Amen.
