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:
O God, our Father, Who knows us better than we know ourselves, let Your Way fill our lives to bring forgiveness, freedom and faith. We come into Your presence weighted by solemn duties and heavy responsibilities, praying for strength and wisdom sufficient to serve our age. We lay before You our frequent disappointments, our frustrated hopes, our shattered dreams, our petty irritations, asking Your healing and renewing help. Make this a world where science brings not destruction but preservation and political action promotes peace. Remove all that obstructs the reign of Your kingship.
We pray in the name of our Redeemer and Lord. Amen.
