          Lord, this is indeed a diverse Senate body - just as the                                  
          people of our state are a diverse people. Different                                       
          races, different cultures, backgrounds and different                                      
          beliefs. You made us all different. We may have                                           
          different names for You, God, but we all come to                                          
          You for our guidance and help. Today I pray that                                          
          You will use the diversity within this body as within                                     
          our state not as a weakness but as our strength. As we                                    
          share with one another - work together - may we do                                        
          our best to see things from the other's point of view,                                    
          "walk a mile in his moccasins," if you will, and be                                       
          the richer for it. As these Senators, each different,                                     
          bring their agendas to the table, may the needs of all                                    
          their constituents be considered, from the smallest,                                      
          farthest village in the Interior, to this capital city, to                                
          urban Anchorage. And we will give You the praise                                          
        and glory for all things.                                     Amen.
