Prayers by the Chaplain, Rev. Peter Marshall, D.D.
Senate of the United States
Monday, June 2, 1947 – Memorial Day Weekend
Take from us the selfishness that is unwilling to bear the burdens of others while expecting that others shall help us with ours. Make us so disgusted with our big professions and our little deeds, our fine words and our shabby thoughts, our friendly faces and our cold hearts, that we shall pray sincerely this morning for a new spirit and new attitudes. Then shall our prayers mean something, not alone to ourselves but to our Nation.
In the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.
