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 God and Father of all, we pray for Your strengthening help as we face responsibilities that tower above us like threatening waves beyond our ability to meet adequately. In quiet confidence we come with an undaunted faith as we say with the Psalmist: "The Lord is the strength of my life, my light and my salvation". We pray for a greater strength: strength to resist evil, strength to overcome temptation, strength to do what we ought to do and to live as we should. Save us from accepting easy answers to the problems that confront us, and from yielding to the temptation of being satisfied with second best when the best can be ours.
In the Name of Jesus, our Lord, we pray. Amen.
