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:
Our Father God, as once more we bow in the quiet stillness of this Chamber where in the past decisions have shaped and molded the life of this great State, be our Guide now that the pending decisions, whose members are entrusted with great responsibilities and unlimited opportunities, may be consistent with Your plans and purposes. Make clear to our understanding that all is futile unless undergirded by spiritual reliance and sustained by a strength not our own, and without which we labor in vain.
Show us, then, Your way, and may we give ourselves unreservedly in accomplishing that way. Amen.
