PRAYER FOR THE SENATE THURSDAY FEBRUARY 27, 2003 REV. DR. RUBEN DIAZ GUEST CHAPLAIN
Heavenly Father, Creator of the heavens and the earth, God
of our beloved nation. The men and women of the United States Senate come
before You today to ask that You bless this legislative body with Your wisdom
We ask that You keep its members in Your holy presence. Psalm 105 says that: “Your word is a lamp to
our feet, and a light to our path.” We
ask that You light our path especially during the difficult and challenging
times of our Nation.
Oh God, we seek Your vision and we want to do Your will that
is pleasing to You and right for our country.
We want our decisions to be unified, in step with justice,
righteousness, and that which best serve the people of this Nation.
Father, we thank You for allowing us the honor and of living
in this great Nation, where our rights and freedoms are protected as “one
Nation under God” with a government “of the people, by the people and for the
people.” We thank you for allowing us
the opportunity to serve.
We humble ourselves and ask You to bless this Senate, its
distinguished members, and all those who work to insure that America continues
to be a great Nation in Your eyes and in the eyes of the world.
