The Senate met pursuant to adjournment.

Reverend Carl Gauck offered the following prayer:

"To think too quickly of prayer as a matter of words can be a most discouraging thing." (Alan Ecclestone)

Gracious God, we sometimes are so concerned with what to say we interfere with what You might say through us. Let our days begin and end in quiet contemplation. Help us to open the channel between our spirits and Yours. Help us to be thoughtful to what You encourage us to express, not so much in words but in action and feeling. Help us serve You this week in this chamber as those called to serve. In Your Holy Name we pray. Amen.
