Invocation for the Maryland Senate
Maryland State Senate
God of truth and love,
send your blessing upon the Maryland Senate,
upon all its members and those they represent.
Through your kindly spirit, guide its deliberations,
now and in the days ahead.
May its work be rooted in your law, written on all human hearts
and animated by that charity which flows from your divine life.
Let its proceedings always be shaped
by concern for human dignity, especially vulnerable human life,
and by the common good of all Marylanders, especially the young.
Help those who hold high office in this Free State
to protect human freedoms and to use well and wisely the gifts
which, in your Providence, you have bestowed upon our beloved State.
We make this prayer in Thy Holy Name. Amen.
