Our thought for today is from Psalm 80:19: "Restore us, O Lord God of hosts; let your face shine, that we may be saved."

Let us pray. Eternal Father, the one who calls us and guides us through these days. Make Your face shine upon us as these Representatives and staff strive to do what is good and fair to the people of this State. Inspire them to turn to You as their leader in all things that matter. Provide for them every needful thing. Bless and protect our defenders of freedom and first responders as they protect us. Look in favor upon our Nation, President, State, Governor, Speaker, staff, and all who serve in this place. Heal the wounds, those seen and those hidden, of our brave warriors who suffer and sacrifice for our freedom. Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayers. Amen.
