Pastor John Fish of First Baptist Church of Iron River offered the following invocation:

Heavenly Father, we are thankful for Your goodness to us, and we are thankful for the privileges we have living in this great nation in the great state of Michigan. We are thankful for the opportunities, for the freedoms that we enjoy, and the hope that You provide through certain God-given rights—life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

Lord, at the same time, we understand that we must be diligent in working to preserve these freedoms and privileges for the next generation. We understand that You work through people to do just that. You have instituted government for the good and welfare of mankind. You have given these Senators who are here this morning the burden of leadership. You have placed them in authority over us, and with authority comes great responsibility. By Your word in 1 Timothy 2, You tell us, You urge us as Your people that, first of all, requests, prayers, intercession, and thanksgiving be made for everyone. For kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all goodness and holiness. This is good and pleases God our Savior, who wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.

So we lift up our nation to You and all who are in authority: our President, those in Washington, our Governors and Congressmen, and especially these men and women who make up this Senate. We pray that they will all come to a knowledge of the truth. Bless them, Lord, as they carry the burden of leadership. The welfare of thousands depends on them. Help them to understand that while You have placed them in positions of power, they are still under authority and must answer for the decisions they make.

So give them a spirit of humility and a great faith in You. Give them wisdom and guidance. Lord, may they lead by example in all that is good and right, putting You in the decision-making process of their lives. May their character give hope to the people. May they seek to understand before seeking to be understood. May they be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to become angry, working together peacefully and in all honesty. Sustain them, Lord, in all the pressures of life as they juggle work and family. Help them to keep their commitments, and give them a proper sense of the priorities, a proper perspective on what is truly important in life. Protect them and their families from all harm as they serve. May the personal trials they face in life produce patience and maturity.

Lord Jesus, perhaps most of all, forgive them when they fail You. We are thankful that You are a forgiving God, gracious and compassionate, slow to anger, abounding in love; for, Lord, we confess that we are a needy people, and our sins are many. Give us grace, Father, and forgive us for our apathy and our disobedience. Help us to be what You have called us to be, and may we not expect from each other the perfection that belongs to You alone.

Lord, we don’t believe that You have brought us this far as a state or as a nation to leave us now, and so we pray that You would grant us success using these fine men and women to truly make a difference at this point in time in history. Holy Spirit, touch every heart that is here, and Father, Your will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

We pray in Jesus’ name. Amen.

The President, Lieutenant Governor Calley, led the members of the Senate in recital of the Pledge of Allegiance.
