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, we thank You for this new day, for its open doors of promise, for hours to be filled with worthy endeavors. Make strong within us the desire to do the very best we can for our God and for the people we serve. May we never break faith with our highest ambitions or leave unrepaired any of yesterday's wrongs. Any action by us that would make the world better, any word that would cheer a despondent heart or brace a weak will, there let us speak and act. This day and every day, grant us the virtues of courtesy, charity, sincerity, understanding and diligence in our service.
We pray in the Name of Him Who went about doing good. Amen.
