Reverend Daniel P. Coughlin
Lord God of the Universe, we praise You and bless You as the 109th Congress gathers to resume its work in serving this nation.
Grant all the Members of this assembly wisdom, prudence and courage as these words of Moses are taken to heart and You pour forth Your Spirit upon two new members as well. "If you will only obey the Lord your God, by diligently observing all the commandments that I enjoin on you today; the Lord your God will raise you high above all the nations of the earth. Every blessing shall come upon you and overwhelm you, if only you obey the Lord your God."
With renewed faith, we place all our trust in You and give You glory by our words and deeds both now and forever.
