Fill us with the fruits of the spirit to work with those who have been chosen to serve in this Body. Bless each of us according to our needs. Provide these Representatives the tools to accomplish their work. Bless our Nation, President, State, Governor, Speaker, staff, and all who serve and advise our leaders. Protect our first responders and those who defend us at home and abroad. Heal the wounds, those seen and those hidden, of our men and women who suffer and sacrifice for our freedom. Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayers. Amen.
