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, unlimited in wisdom and power, we come into Your presence aware of our needs and with confidence that You are here to lead us, to give us strength to do Your will, and to be our support for the responsibilities of this day. Help us to rise above that which is mean and small. Humble us in our pride, make us strong in our weakness. Speak Your Word to us and give us ears to hear, minds to heed, and hands and feet to do Your will in a way altogether acceptable to You. Thus may we be one in our endeavors as we face the events and experiences of this day.
In our Master's Name we pray. Amen.
