Let us pray. Lord God, You have given strength, courage, and wisdom to these Representatives and staff. Give them a restful time now as they complete their work and return home. Guide them in all they do for the sake of the people of this State. Bless on our Nation, President, State, Governor, Speaker, and all who labor in these Halls of Government. Protect our defenders of freedom at home and abroad as they protect us. Hear us, O Lord, as we pray. Amen.
