Let us pray. Holy God, we give You thanks for guiding these Representatives through the days of this week. Give them the means whereby they can continue to accomplish the work needing to be done. Keep them safe from all harm. Bless our Nation, President, State, Governor, Speaker, staff, and all who labor in these Halls of Government. 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.
