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 our Father, Whose love is without limit and Whose truth endures forever, we lift our thoughts above the clamor and confusion of the world into the calm of Your presence. With Your help we are able to make wise decisions, gain strength for daily duties, and find courage to tackle problems and are given faith to move forward fearlessly knowing that You are with us and that we are laboring for the highest good. Make us strong enough to do the things we ought to do and wise enough not to do what needs be undone.
We pray earnestly in the words of the Psalmist: "Show me Your way, O Lord; teach me Your paths" (Psalm 25:4). Amen.
