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 and eternal God, add to our strength that power that comes to those who lean upon You in faith. Lead us moment by moment and step by step into the right direction and to correct conclusions. Preserve in us an inner serenity, and outward courtesy and an obedience to conscience in all that we think, say and do. We lift our prayer not just for ourselves, but for all who are service to God and mankind. Open unto all people an era when justice and truth and righteousness shall prevail everywhere. We pray for all Your children: the distressed and the poor, the hungry and neglected. This day and every day may we be given to charity, sincerity and diligence in our service.
We pray in the Name of Him Who went about doing good. Amen.
After corrections to the Journal of the proceedings of yesterday, the SPEAKER ordered it confirmed.
At 10:03 A.M. the House in accordance with the ruling of the SPEAKER adjourned to meet at 12:00 Noon, Tuesday, January 24.
