God of freedom, we remember this morning the great freedoms we                 
enjoy in this country.  We give thanks for the freedom that is                 
represented by this Senate assembled here from all over our great              
state.  We as a people have freely chosen these individuals to lead            
us.                                                                            
                                                                               
Help us not to take our freedom for granted.  We remember that in              
the history of this world, democracy is an extremely recent form of            
government.  And even today, as we survey the globe, we realize                
that many peoples are not free.                                                
                                                                               
Help us also to remember that our freedom has been purchased by                
the lives of men and women who loved country more than self and                
gave their lives that we might live in freedom.                                
                                                                               
Democracy is not easy.  These Senators and their legislative aides             
and assistants and all of the staffs of assistants that work to make           
this democracy possible have all made sacrifices in order to be here           
today undertaking this work.  Bless them and their families as they            
give of themselves in this manner.

Help us as a state to order our laws and affairs in a manner worthy            
of this great freedom.  Help us to live up to the examples of                  
diligence and self-sacrifice that are laid out before us.  May this            
legislative process yield laws that are not merely beneficial to our           
interests, but that are also good, true and right in light of Your             
perfect law.                                                     Amen.
