The House assembled at 10:00 A.M.
Deliberations were opened with prayer by the Chaplain of the House of Representatives, the Rev. Dr. Alton C. Clark as follows:
We remember with gratitude, O Lord, Your tender mercies and Your loving kindnesses for they have been ever of old. For the constancy of Your care and the never-ending nature of Your blessings, we lift our hearts in gratitude. Make real Your presence and defend us this day and every day against the onslaughts of temptation. Lead us, strengthen us and endow us with virtues becoming of true discipleship. We thank You for things that endure: beauty, goodness, truth.
In the assurance possessed by the Psalmist, enable us to say in confidence: "It is a good thing to give thanks unto the Lord, and to sing praises unto Your Name, O Most High"-Psalm 92:1.
In our Redeemer's Name we pray. Amen.
