Senate Opening Prayer - January 7

The Chaplain, Dr. Barry C. Black, offered the following prayer:
  Let us pray.
  Eternal God, ultimate judge of us all, provide for the needs of our 
lawmakers from Your boundless resources. Lead them along paths that 
will bring glory and honor to Your Name as You surround them with the 
shield of Your divine favor. Lord, intervene in their lives to keep 
them from becoming weary in choosing the harder right and lead them in 
the way everlasting. Keep our Senators from presuming that You are 
automatically on their side. Instead, let them earnestly seek to be on 
Your side. Enable them to find unity with each other because of their 
connection with You.
  We pray in Your merciful Name. Amen.
