Rev. Bill Tipton, Pastor of Berean Baptist Church in Grand Blanc, offered the following invocation:

“Sovereign God, our Father Who is in heaven.

We come into Your presence this afternoon, in that Name that is above every name: the Lord Jesus Christ. We dare not tread Your holy courts apart from the atoning blood of Christ.

Almighty God, I pray that ‘the powers that be’ in this House would stand boldly as our protectors. May they protect our citizens from those who would do us harm. Protect us, from those who would seek to establish unjust laws in our State. Protect the unborn from the moment of conception and the elderly who move toward their last breath upon this earth. May they stand as guardians, protecting our freedom to proclaim both the gospel and the law of God. Protect them as they faithfully protect us.

Great and living God, You are the God of ultimate and infinite wisdom. I pray our Representatives would seek the wisdom that comes not from below but from above. No price can be attached to Your wisdom. It is greater than gold, silver, precious rubies, and fleeting fame. You have instructed us, in all our getting, get wisdom for it is the principle thing. Assure our elected officials, that to embrace Your wisdom will guarantee blazing insight on how to represent, serve, and rule through this House of government. May those of this Institution be wise, and support no law that conflicts with Your divine law.

Lord God, over two and a half millenniums ago, You warned us through the prophet Amos not to turn justice into wormwood. ‘But to let justice run down like water, And righteousness like a mighty stream’ (Amos 5:24, NKJV). May these words be a constant echo in this Chamber. From here release the cleansing rains of justice. From here release a mighty river of righteousness, that will overflow every hamlet, village, and city in our beloved State.

Amen.”
