Award Ceremony Invocation

Dear God,

I ask for your blessing on this ceremony, our awardees and all who are gathered with us today. I pray that you will fill each employee with satisfaction at the great work they are doing for the sake of their country. I especially pray for those who are deployed away from home. Keep us all, and those we love, safe and strong. Grant us success in every good endeavor as we serve our community, our nation and our world. Be with us this hour, and every hour, I pray. Amen.
