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 God, we come in full confidence that You will hear our prayer and never send us away empty handed. Make our minds shrines of Your truths and our hearts sanctuaries of Your understanding. Help us to walk worthily in the way of Your Word and thus to build highways of brotherly love and goodwill among Your children. As we face unfinished tasks, may we make our decisions wisely, plan our procedures skillfully, and develop our policies soundly. Make us adequate for every situation, ready for each responsibility, and equal to every emergency. In the midst of busy days, may we never forget Your truths or be unmindful that we are to give ourselves in service to God and His people.
In Jesus' Name we pray. Amen.
