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:
Almighty God, unendingly gracious and abundantly good, we commit ourselves to Your Divine providence that You may govern our minds and guide them in the way of wisdom and righteousness. Take our feeble and faltering spirits and make them into sanctuaries of Your will and way. In times of misgiving and forebodings, give us the assurance of Your gracious presence, and empower us with Your conquering strength. Inspire us to plan wisely, to pray fervently, and labor faithfully for programs pleasing to You. Make us to know that more than the length of life is the way we spend each day.
Hear our prayer which we offer to our good Heavenly Father. Amen.
