e/d/s = entered during session

Fr. James Berends, Pastor of Holy Trinity Greek Orthodox Church in Grand Rapids, offered the following invocation:

 

徹ur Father Who art in Heaven may we never take for granted that we are able to enter into Your presence. Knowing that we may turn to You at any time and ask for a wisdom from above, we want to thank You for the great honor of entering this chamber, not only for me but for those who have been selected and elected to serve.

With any new venture there is a large amount of uncertainty, a fear of the unknown. Whether it be a first term, or the first days of a new session, the excitement of new possibilities can invigorate our efforts. Help all to recall that excitement. For some this is one of the first days to serve; may they remember these days before routine can douse enthusiasm. For those who are better acquainted with the routine of service, may they recall those first days.

We pray for those in authority over us that it may go well for them. For when things fare well for our leaders, it is well for the people whom they govern. You give wisdom to those who seek, peace to those who desire and guidance to those who ask, for every good and perfect thing comes from above.

We thank You for Your eternal presence. A source of wisdom and guidance beyond our own experience, education and efforts. We stand when we are united and fall when divided. With such a diversity of experience and background, though we may start from different points, each has one goal in mind; the welfare and well-being of the citizens of this Great State. Truly this goal can help us to accomplish greater things than we could have ever hoped for or imagined.

For all these things, we humbly ask and pray. Amen.
