Heavenly Father we are gathered here this evening to pay tribute to men and women who have dedicated their lives in order to better the world we live in our City and State where all dwell as one. Cause your blessing upon the Officers and Leadership of the 1st New York Conservative Democratic Club whom have brought us here together tonight and have selected the Honorees of this evening. Bless the Governor of our great State, George Pataki, Elected Officials, Law Enforcement Professionals and all those involved in the Public Domain. Grant them wisdom, knowledge and under-standing, sustain them as they make the important decision each day which affects all of our lives. Bestow your bountiful blessings upon all gathering here this evening, their families and loved ones as we celebrate this event as one. As we are about to partake, of thy bounty, we thank you U’ Lord for natures gifts that nourish our bodies, stimulate our minds, and enable us to rise to the highest potential thou has ordained for us.
