The invocation was offered by the Chaplain, Father Peter Gorges of             
the Roman Catholic Church.  Representative Bunde moved and asked               
unanimous consent that the invocation be spread on the journal.  There         
being no objection, it appears below:                                          
                                                                               
"Lord God,                                                                    
                                                                               
You created the heavens and the earth, and everything in                      
between.  You gave us this great land of Alaska, with its                      
towering mountains and mighty rivers.  You filled our waters                   
with life, and You blessed our forests with life.  And, finally,               
You brought into this land a people who were eager to                          
become part of it.  Those people have elected us to represent                  
them in this assembly.                                                         
                                                                               
Help us be men and women to match our mountains.  Help us                     
be men and women with the untiring energy of our rivers.                       
Help us be stewards of this land, in such a way, that we are                   
sensitive to its beauty, conscientious in its development, alert               
to its opportunities, respectful of its life, and worthy of the                
trust that our constituents have placed in us.                                 
                                                                               
Amen."
