“Prayer for the General Assembly and Governor
God of power and might, wisdom and justice,
Through You, authority is rightly administered,
laws are enacted, and judgment is decreed.
Assist with your spirit of counsel and fortitude

May they always seek the ways of
righteousness and mercy.
Grant that they may be enabled by your
powerful protections to lead our State with honesty and integrity. Amen.
