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, Whose love is eternal, Whose power is infinite, and Whose truth endures forever, be our Refuge, our Strength, our Help in every situation. Support us when difficult decisions face us, and when problems seem complex. Be with us, as You were with the Israelites, as a pillar of cloud by day and by fire by night to lead us. May our faith in God deliver us from tension that would tear us apart and from worries that would wear us out. Keep our vision clear, our thoughts pure, and our actions courageous.
Engraft with us Your words of assurance: "He that abides in Me, and I in him, the same brings forth much fruit". Amen.
