  The Chaplain, Dr. Barry C. Black, offered the following prayer:
  Let us pray.
  O Lord, our God, You rule the raging of the sea. You are the giver of 
our lives, and we belong to You. Sustain our lawmakers with Your 
everlasting arms. Direct their actions as they seek to glorify You. 
Lord, surround them with Your gracious favor so they may more fully 
serve You faithfully. Deliver them from discord and disunity through 
the power of Your prevailing providence.
  And, Lord, we thank You for the life, contributions, and legacy of 
our Assistant Parliamentarian, Michael Phillip Beaver. Sustain his 
loved ones and friends during this season of grief.
  We pray in Your merciful Name. Amen.
