Senate chaplain: ‘Lord, deliver us from governing by crisis’
It's the job of the Senate chaplain to say a prayer each morning when
the Senate begins a new session. Just days before a possible federal
government shutdown, the prayer offered by Barry C. Black
on Friday was especially timely:
Keep us from shackling ourselves with the chains of
dysfunction. Use our senators today to serve your purposes for this
generation, making them ever mindful of their accountability to you.
Lord, deliver us from governing by crisis, empowering us to be
responsible stewards of your bounty.
Using judicious compromise for the mutual progress of all. Provide
this land we love with your gracious protection and may we never cease
to be grateful for the numberless blessings we receive each day from
We pray, in your merciful name, Amen.
