The Chaplain, Dr. Barry C. Black, offered the following prayer on January 22:

Let us pray.

Sovereign God, author of liberty, we gather in this historic Chamber  for the solemn responsibility of these impeachment proceedings. Give  wisdom to the distinguished Chief Justice, John Roberts, as he

Lord, You are all-powerful and know our thoughts before we form them.

As our lawmakers have become jurors, remind them of Your admonition in  1 Corinthians 10:31, that whatever they do should be done for Your  glory. Help them remember that patriots reside on both sides of the  aisle, that words have consequences, and that how something is said can  be as important as what is said. Give them a civility built upon  integrity that brings consistency in their beliefs and actions.

We pray in Your powerful Name. Amen
