Thank You for today.  Thank You for life.  Thank                              
You for each people of Alaska.  Grant us all the                               
grace to honor one another with deepest respect and

merely parochial interests.  We pray that the work                             
we do here will serve all, including those who did                             
not bring us to this place.  May we remember the                               
elderly and the children, so that our children may                             
learn how to remember us and our grandchildren in                              
their time.  I come to You in the name of life,
