    young adults in a world and a political system that yearns for

    We know we were trusted to serve as representatives of our

    our ability for a short term of office.  But let us not forget that                                                         
    before we filed for office, before we won our election, and                                                                 
    before we cast our first vote here in this chamber, you,                                                                    
    Almighty Father, gave us the eternal gift of life and the gift of

    between your commandments and our political actions.  We                                                                    
    pray for mercy and for the strength needed not to yield to

    Please help us not be too critical or too judgmental of those                                                               
    with whom we disagree or those accused of anything,                                                                         
    however egregious, because only you know the truth because                                                                  
    you are the truth.                                                                                                          
                                                                                                                                
    But at the same time, let us not lose our anchor of faith or                                                                
    ignore thy moral compass in some misguided effort to curry

    should not.  And please help us remember that, while many of

    We hear concerns of budget deficits and revenue

    course.  But let us also be even more concerned about prayer

    development.  In other words, help us keep our priorities

    Help us to cast every vote in this House of Representatives

    voting only in accordance with polls, not voting only in blind                                                              
    obedience with some earthly party line or political spin, but                                                               
    rather help us to vote in accordance with what is right and                                                                 
    good in the sight of you, Almighty God, whose term of office                                                                
    never ends.  Help us to understand it is our job, here on earth,                                                            
    to support worthy causes and cast righteous votes, but it is

    God, protect our nation and the state of Alaska.  Protect our

    Father God, protect all of us here today and all our loved ones
