Pastor Zach Terry Opens U.S. Congress in Prayer

On February 25th, 2024, Pastor Zach Terry opened a session of the United States Congress in Prayer. Congressman Aaron Bean of Florida’s 4th Congressional District invited Pastor Zach, his family, and a number of friends from the First Baptist Church of Fernandina Beach to the Nation’s Capital to tour historic buildings, learn about the inner workings of Government, meet with Congressional officials and spend time praying for our Nation.

The text of the Prayer was as follows: Heavenly Father, As we gather in this chamber, recognizing You as the only Sovereign over these United States, we acknowledge our dependency upon You alone.  

May Your Holy Spirit awaken within our Representatives those timeless truths of scripture, whispered from the lips of their ancestors and thundered from the sacred desk. Those principles of liberty and justice that transcend both time and culture, and serve as a beacon amid the stormy seas of governance.

May this congress embody the most sacred ideals of their constituents and honor the legacy of their honorable predecessors.

The good citizens of this nation have elected them, but You, oh Lord, have appointed them for such a time as this. May the decisions they make today seek to honor the prayer of our Lord, “Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.”

I ask all of these things, in Jesus’ name, Amen.

Zach Terry
