“Let’s pray –

Almighty God and Father of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, together we come before you in humility as a people in need of your forgiveness, your mercy, your goodness, and your grace.  For these two-hundred and fifty so years, our fathers in this Congress have prayed for your guidance and protection, and so we stand here in humble petition that you today might do the same, that this nation, and its unparallelled constitution, your great gift to all freedom loving people, might be renewed here, and across this land as a beacon of hope to all who seek peace. 

I ask you today, Father, to bring to us a great awakening of righteousness and confidence in you, who alone is mighty to save.  Hear my cry in this hour of great need that we might be humbly blessed before you in the repentance of our national sins.  You, almighty God, are the source of all wisdom, and there is no wisdom but that which comes from you.  So please, come upon those here who are the stewards over the business of our nation with your wisdom which comes from above, and with your holy fear knowing that your coming day of judgment draws near when all who have been, and are now in authority will answer to you, the great judge of heaven, and of earth, for the decisions that they make here in this place.  I offer this prayer to you, Father, in the name of Jesus Christ, your Son and our crucified savior, and resurrected Lord.  In Jesus name, Amen.”
