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:
Unchanging God of understanding, we come again in prayer constrained by Your beckoning and compelled by our need. We are grateful that You are always anxious to share with us Your divine strength to fortify us against the evil forces and influences that would undermine our character and corrupt our soul. We penitently confess that we are often without a clear vision of things of highest values because of our own selfish interests.
Grant us Your wisdom as we face the duties and responsibilities of this day, and every day. Amen.
We pray because we believe You hear our prayers. Amen.
