unanimous consent that the prayer be spread. Without objection, it             
was so ordered.                                                                
                                                                               
                                                                               
Dear Lord, the men and women of this body have                                
huge decisions to make that will affect the lives of                           
people they will never even meet. Grant these                                  
Senators the ability to discern truth, the courage to                          
say yes to that which is right and no to that which                            
is wrong, the vision to see how far their actions                              
here will reach, and the wisdom to weigh issues                                
carefully where there is no right or wrong answer.                             
May Alaska be better for their work instead of in                              
spite of it. We pray for those people we name in                               
our hearts now.                                Amen.
