With the congressional supercommittee tackling the federal debt crisis apparently gridlocked, Senate Chaplain Barry C. Black on Thursday tapped a higher power.
Opening the chamber's session in the morning, he asked for God's blessings on lawmakers, as he usually does — and then asked for the Almighty to shed some providential wisdom particularly on the 12 members of the committee struggling to lower the future debt increases by $1.5 trillion.
"Eradicate false ambition as you make them content to serve you where they are and as they are. In a special way, guide the supercommittee in its challenging work," the chaplain said.
