We thank Thee that Thou art with these servants to help them bear the very heavy responsibilities, as they leave their homes and families, not for gain nor for any selfish motives, but with a conscientiousness and sincere desire to help the State in which they live. God bless the members of our State Legislature in a very special manner on this Good Friday morning and may they remember that Thou art ever with them. May they go forward in the spirit of their Master, Who will assist them in all things. Bless, we pray, these men as they wrestle with mighty problems.
