          Gracious God, we awakened again to a dark and dreary day and we know our need of Your light and its drawing power so we may see the beauty of the day You bring to us even while darkness covers our land. Let Your light lead us along a right pathway so we may serve You as we do our best for all the people of this state and let our actions bring a light of help to those who need it the most.
