The Chaplain, the Reverend Daniel P. Coughlin, offered the following
Eternal God, always the refuge for the homeless, the refugee and
immigrant, be with us as we pray today.
The sound of Abraham's call to leave his home and live by faith
echoes through the halls of this Nation's history. Since the founding
of these United States of America, people have come to this land as if
out of the desert into a place of promise and hope. The experience of
immigrants has built up this Nation as a response to Your invitation,
Lord. ``Go . . . I will show you a place.''
We bless You and praise You for all those of this Nation who continue
to build upon the past, and by their prayers and their noble deeds
still grace this Nation and its future.
Even in this time, sometimes called ``the age of worldwide
refugees,'' You still call people to faith and freedom.
Bless the Members of Congress and grant them wisdom as they secure
homeland borders and enact lawful immigration. The world will be shown
a land where Your promise will be realized, faith can be expressed, and
all will be free.
We still answer Your call, Lord, now and forever. Amen.
