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:
O Lord our God, we know not what this day will bring, but of one thing we are confidently sure: that You are near whatever the circumstances. Make us to depend upon Your strength that power may be sufficient to meet our challenges. Lead us moment by moment and step by step in the right direction and to correct conclusions. Keep our consciences keen, and obedient to conscience in all things. Preserve with us an inner confidence and an outward courtesy. Give us a sense of purpose inspired by Your teachings.
We pray in the Name of Him Who is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. Amen.
