Our thought for today is from Isaiah 40:31: "But those who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength, they shall mount us with wings like eagles, they shall run and not be weary, they shall walk and not faint."
Let us pray. Almighty and powerful God, grant these Representatives and staff the strength and eagerness to do for the State the necessary work on the Budget. Grant them wisdom and integrity. We remember those who defend us and keep us safe. Bless these Representatives and staff, our World, Nation, President, State, Governor, Speaker, staff, and all who give of their time and effort to make the system work. Heal the wounds, those seen and those hidden, of our brave men and women who suffer and sacrifice for our freedom. Lord, in Your Mercy, hear our prayers. Amen.
