The Senate chaplain began the impeachment trial with a prayer, urging lawmakers to "remember that patriots reside on both sides of the aisle."
"Give them a civility built upon integrity that brings consistency in their beliefs and actions," he said.
The prayer came a day after Chief Justice John Roberts scolded both sides for tense exchanges on the Senate floor.
Here's his full prayer:
"Sovereign God, author of liberty, we gather in this historic chamber for the solemn responsibility of these impeachment proceedings. Give wisdom to the distinguished Chief Justice John Roberts, as he presides. Lord, you are all powerful and know our thoughts before we form them. As our lawmakers have become jurors, remind them of your admonition in first Corinthians 10:31 — that whatever they do should be done for your glory. Help them remember that patriots reside on both sides of the aisle, that words have consequences and that how something is said can be as important as what is said. Give them a civility built upon integrity that brings consistency in their beliefs and actions. We pray in your powerful name, amen."
