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 Thou changeless God in this changing world, to Whom our prayers ascend each day, help us in the stewardship of high office to separate the permanent from the temporal, the eternal from the worldly, the enduring from the perishable. Preserve us from doing hastily the wrong thing at the wrong time when study and patience and hard work may achieve the right thing in the right way.
Show us how to move when the way is clear, to take steps when they should be taken, and to follow Thy light upon unfinished tasks. Keep our lives under the rule of the law of Mount Sinai and the principles of the Sermon on the Mount.
In the Name of Jesus, the Christ, we pray.
