Chaplains Pray to Break Fiscal Cliff Gridlock

Ad Feedback

House and Senate chaplains are making the fiscal cliff gridlock in Congress a matter of prayer.

At a pro-forma session Thursday, House Chaplain Patrick Contry asked God to "send a spirit of wisdom and good judgment upon the leaders of Congress, that they might forge a solution to assuage the concerns of their fellow citizens."

He also prayed that the Capitol would be filled with the Holy Spirit, "so that there might be peace on Earth and good will among all men and women."

On the Senate side, Chaplain Barry Black asked God to give senators, "the wisdom to refuse to sow to the wind, thereby risking reaping the whirlwind."
