WASHINGTON — In his final impeachment trial opening prayer Friday, the Senate's chaplain offered thanks for the tenor of the debate and asked for healing for President Clinton and his family.
The Rev. Lloyd Ogilvie, in his familiar resonant voice, thanked God for what he called "an open, honest debate of alternative solutions" and for a "spirit of unity" within the Senate.
"Most important of all, we know that we can trust you with the results," Ogilvie said. "You can use what is decided and continue to accomplish your plans for America."
"We entrust to your care the president and his family. Use whatever is decided today to enable a deeper experience of your grace in his life and healing in his family."
