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:
Most merciful and gracious God, beyond Whose care and concern we cannot drift, in the beauty of this new day we come lifting our hearts as we prepare for the tasks ahead. As we stand still in Your presence, we ask strength for our hands, wisdom for these hours, and faith for every moment to carry us through with high honor and creative courage. Throughout this day, may we hear and heed Your voice calling us to be faithful and true, strong and steady. In every experience that comes our way and each event that takes place may we master it with credit to ourselves, to our fellowbeings, and to our God.
In Jesus' Name we pray. Amen.
