              Father, we praise You for the freedom You have afforded us in this country. We pray that we in this building will be proper guardians of that freedom. We must inspire the people who are citizens of this state as we struggle to resolve the problems of our budget. Compliance will be difficult and we pray for Your wisdom and guidance as we seek to effect the compromises that will be required.


              Thank You very much for loving us and watching over us. Give us good days as legislators.


              In Your Son’s name we pray. Amen.
