    Dear God, as we gather here today, charged with the work of                                     
    guiding our state and making decisions that will have far-                                      
    reaching effects on the lives of all Alaskans, grant us serenity                                
    in our deliberations and wisdom in our decisions.  As we have                                   
    read in the book of Psalms, "Teach us to make the most of our                                   
    time, so that we grow in wisdom."                                                               
                                                                                                    
    We thank You for this beautiful day, a day befitting our                                        
    Capital city and this great state.  We thank You for the strong,                                
    independent, and resilient spirit of the people of Alaska, and                                  
    we thank You for Your divine grace and providence.

    As we move forward through these final days of session, I                                       
    pray that we will conduct our affairs with friendship and                                       
    goodwill and that when we leave here, we can all be proud of                                    
    the work that we have done, ever mindful of the work                                            
    remaining, and confident that we have moved the state of                                        
    Alaska toward a brighter and more prosperous future.                                            
                                                                                                    
    We humbly ask these things of You, our creator.  Amen.
