There being no objection, it appears below:                                    
                                                                               
Dear Lord,                                                                    
                                                                               
We thank You for another day of life.                                         
                                                                               
Lord, many come into this Chamber, not just with the great                    
public concerns of budgets and resource management and all                     
on their minds.  There are also the private concerns of                        
children, parents, and spouses; matters related to home and                    
health; hopes and fears no one else may be aware of.                           
                                                                               
While these sons and daughters of Yours deal with matters of                  
public interest, we pray that You would also grant them the                    
grace and resources to attend, even to the most private and                    
personal of matters.                                                           
                                                                               
In Your name we ask these things.                                             
                                                                               
Amen.
