                                 prayer

  The Chaplain, Dr. Barry C. Black, offered the following prayer:
  O God, the King of Glory, Your never failing providence sets in order 
all things both in Heaven and Earth. You give comfort to all who seek 
You. You have promised to supply all our needs with riches from Your 
celestial bounty.
  You are at work in the events of our lives, bringing melody from 
cacophony and unity from division.
  Bless our Senators as they trust Your mighty power. Bless, also, the 
members of their families who support them in their arduous work. 
Remind each of us that righteousness is the only true national defense.
  O God, we wait for You to answer and trust You with our future. Help 
us to live by faith, so that we are acceptable to You. May the lives we 
live tell the world of Your marvelous deeds.
  Amen.
