Sunday Prayer Service Held in the Capitol

This morning Congressman Randy Forbes (R-VA) and the bipartisan Congressional Prayer Caucus held a prayer service in Statuary Hall of the U.S. Capitol. In 1800, Congress approved the Capitol as a place of worship and it was the largest church in Washington in 1867, with 2,000 weekly attendees for Sunday services.

At the service today, a prayer was once again read that was read on the floor of the Senate on March 21, 1947, 63 years ago to this day:
O Lord our God, in the midst of the troubles that surround us, when compromises come home to roost and expediencies return to plague us, keep us from adding to the mistakes of the past. Save us from accepting a little of what we know to be wrong in order to get a little of what we imagine to be right. Help us to stand up for the inalienable rights of mankind and the principles of democratic government consistently and with courage, knowing that Thy power and Thy blessing will be upon us only when we are in the right. May we so speak, and vote, and live, as to merit Thy blessing. Through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Here is a short video clip from the Prayer Service on Sunday.

One Response to Sunday Prayer Service Held in the Capitol

  1. Lynn says:

    And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is the spirit of antichrist where of ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world.
    Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world.
    1 John 4: 3-4
