    God our Father, we stand here today with gratitude for the                                      
    privilege of representing our fellow citizens.  This is a task                                  
    that is bigger than we are; therefore, we look to You for                                       
    guidance in our deliberations.  As we endeavor to make laws                                     
    to protect or provide for our people, please keep us from                                       
    wrongfully dominating the lives that we are here to serve; and                                  
     that justice and mercy may find their balance as You guide us.                                
                                                                                                    
    As we put forth our views and argue our cause before this                                       
    body and all of Alaska, please gently remind us that our hearts                                 
    are on display before You and for all to see.  And now we go                                    
    to the business of the day with good courage being reminded                                     
    of Your presence.  In Jesus' Name.  Amen.
