A Prayer by Peter Marshall – Chaplain to US Senate
(June 4, 1948)

Lord, we are ashamed that money and position speak to us more loudly than does the simple compassion of the human heart.

 Help us to car, as Thou dost care, for the little people who have no lobbyists, for the minority groups who sorely need justice.

May it be the glory of our government that not only the strong are heard, but also the weak; not only the powerful, but the helpless; not only those with influence, but also those who have nothing but a case and an appeal.
May we put our hearts into our work that our work may get into our hearts.
