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:
We pause, O God, in this quiet moment of prayer to receive strength for the day, wisdom for decisions, and confidence to stand firm for what is right. Keep our vision clear, our hearts pure, our thoughts positive, our plans right. Lead us to realms where good will shall reign, righteousness shall be supreme and where Your children shall live together in peace and freedom. Deliver us from tension that would tear us down and from worries that would wear us out. And cause us to leave the results to God when we have done our best.
Inspire us with the words of the Psalmist when he wrote: "Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for the brethren to dwell together in unity" (Psalm 133:1). Amen.
