    In deepest respect for the religious traditions and prayer life of                              
    each person present, let us pause for a moment of prayer and                                    
    reflection.  Let us pray.                                                                       
                                                                                                    
    Gracious God, today we want to pray for children.  We thank                                     
    You for the joy they bring, for their exciting view of the                                      
    world, for their innocence.  We thank You for the wonder of                                     
    kids; for our own kids, for the kids in our neighborhoods, and                                  
    for all the kids in our state.  Today we want to hold all of                                    
    them up in prayer; the kids who have enough to sustain them                                     
    in their lives; enough love, food, and education.  And we                                       
    especially want to pray for the ones who don't.  Help us,                                       
    loving God, to see each child as sacred, each as a precious                                     
    gift.

    We pray today for the work You give us to do, for the                                           
    priorities that You order.  We recall that when the prophet                                     
    Micah asked what was required of him, the answer You gave                                       
    him was to seek justice, to love kindness, and to walk humbly                                   
    with his God.  Today we pray for humility in a life of service                                  
    to the people of this state.  Keep our heads out of the clouds                                  
    and on the tasks at hand with gratitude that we've been                                         
    allowed to serve.  Amen.
