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:
Our Father God Who has given us the morning light, give us Your blessings throughout this day. With the assurance of Your presence, may we face the tasks of this day with courage and in sincerity of mind and heart. May no deceit dim our vision, no hatred mar our relationship with others, no pretense effect our attitude toward ourselves. Give to the citizens of this great Nation a spirit of unity that powers without morals may never destroy our freedom or diminish our trust in God. Keep us worthy of our citizenship and give us courage and strength to preserve liberty, defeat tyranny, and establish a just and lasting peace in the world.
In You, O Lord, do we put our trust. Amen.
