Chaplain:  "Almighty God, Father of all mankind and judge over nations, we pray to thee to guide our work in this meeting and in all our days, send thy peace to our nation and to all nations, hasten the fulfillment of Thy promise of peace that shall have no end."

"We pray for those who serve the people and guard the public welfare that by Thy blessing they may be enabled to discharge their duties honestly and well.  We pray for our comrades that by Thy help they may observe the strictest Justice.  Keep alight the fires of Freedom.  Strive earnestly for the spirit of Democracy, and preserve untarnished our loyalty to our Country and to Thee.  Especially do we ask, Thy blessing and comfort for those comrades who are suffering mental and physical disability.  Cheer them and bring back to them the blessings of health and happiness.  Finally, oh God of mercy, we remember lovingly before Thee our departed comrades who receive with Thee the reward of life everlasting.  May theirsplendid example guide us, now and forever.  Amen."
