    I respect and recognize that each of us has a different religious                               
    background and I invite you to join in your custom and habit                                    
    that you choose.  So, would you join me in prayer.                                              
                                                                                                    
    God, help us to be aware of the pain in the hearts of many in                                   
    our state, some of whom are in these chambers today.  It                                        
    becomes difficult at times to be in touch with You because of                                   
    our busy lifestyles and demands upon our time.                                                  
                                                                                                    
    Yet, when we are aware of the pain in some hearts or when                                       
    we truly face the complexity of issues overshadowing our                                        
    responsibilities, we need Your mercy and Your grace.                                            
                                                                                                    
    Father, I pray You will guide our decisions today.  I thank                                     
    You in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.  Amen.
