Rep. David B. Robertson, from the 51st District, offered the following invocation:

"Lord God of heaven and earth,

All that exists belongs to You, for You are the Creator of all things. You made the heavens and the earth to serve You and to give You pleasure. We ourselves are here on earth only to serve You, and You have given us the opportunity and the obligation to manage Your possessions during our lives. One day You will call each one of us to account for our stewardship of what is Yours. May we then hear Your judgment, 'Well done, good and faithful steward!'

Lord God, as legislators in this great state of Michigan, we have been elected to serve the people of Michigan as managers of their money and stewards of their freedoms. In all of our deliberations and decisions, may we keep in mind that we are responsible for the wealth, the well-being, and the freedoms of others, and that they will sit in judgment on us for the job that we are doing here today. Give us wisdom, patience, understanding, and concern for the lives and the welfare of the people of Michigan so that we may do our jobs well and guide our state back to the prosperity it once had, while also safeguarding the freedoms of our people to live their lives as they wish.

Heavenly Father, also give wisdom, patience and understanding to those who serve our people on the national level, that they may promote peace and unity in our United States of America. We humbly ask You to protect all those who serve in our armed forces around the world.

We ask all this in the name of Your Son, our Savior, Jesus Christ. Amen."
