Gracious God, we are mindful this day of the contributions of Martin Luther King whose dream was for the nation and the world to be more tolerant and accepting of one another. That is a proper beacon for us to follow as we in the Senate seek new ways of working and serving with one another. And so we pray that Your Spirit will direct us along this path during these days ahead of us. In Your Holy Name we pray. Amen.
