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:
Eternal Father, we thank You for these moments of prayer when there comes to our realization that You are always ready to hear us when we pray and to answer us when we call. Be with us not only when we pray, but in all of our activities. Spare us from cozy acquiescence with things as they are. Guard us from confirmation of the unexamined course of action. Give to us the determination to live by the moral imperatives delivered to us by the Nation's founding father - those spiritual verities which lift and help and heal. Empty from our minds all that obstructs goodness and righteousness; make us obedient to Your voice which says: "This is the way, walk in it".
We pray in the Name of Jesus, the Christ. Amen.
After corrections to the Journal of the proceedings of yesterday, the SPEAKER ordered it confirmed.
At 10:15 A.M. the House in accordance with the ruling of the SPEAKER adjourned to meet at 12:00 Noon on Tuesday.
