Our thought for today is from Isaiah 42:3: "A bruised reed he will not break, and a dimly burning wick he will not quench."
Let us pray. Holy God, we put our trust and hope in You. Teach us to know our strengths, so that we can use them for the good of the people of this State and Nation. Continue to be the strength for these Representatives and staff as they meet, discuss, debate, and make decisions. As You have continued to bless and preserve Your people, continue these blessings on all our leaders of Nation, State, and for this House and its staff members. Protect our defenders of freedom, at home and abroad, as they protect us. Heal the wounds, those seen and those hidden, of our brave warriors. Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayer. Amen.
