O God, in Whom we move and live and have our being, guide the members of our State Senate who assemble in session this day as well as all who are duly elected to serve us.

May they work in a cooperative effort that will enrich the lives of our citizens and continue to make our State a place of welcome for all regardless of their differences.

Bless the men and women of our State who are serving in the armed forces at home and overseas. Protect them from all harm and bring them home safely to their families.
