God of Patience and Understanding,                                            
                                                                               
We are gathered here, often with different priorities                         
and purposes.  May this mixture of diverse people,                             
through dialogue and a common love for our state,                              
resolve to find joint purposes that best serve the                             
needs of our people.                                                           
                                                                               
In a time when all segments of our society suffer                             
from a lack of quality role models, help us to be a                            
resource of leadership people, who by our integrity                            
and honesty, build bridges of relationship and model                           
the kind of lives we wish the youth of our state to                            
adopt.                                                                         
                                                                               
In the chaotic reality of unfinished business, help                           
order to come out of disorder.  Free us to live with                           
our frustrations and to be effective in our serving,                           
even when quick decisions elude us.

Regardless of the expectations piled on us from                               
every direction, help us to find peace in the midst                            
of chaos, solutions in the midst of dilemmas, and                              
hope where there sometimes appears only to be                                  
hopelessness.
