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, Guardian of our lives, be with us not only during these moments of prayer but during our working hours as well. Quicken within us noble impulses, worthy purposes and wise actions. Give us hearts free from malice and filled with charity and good will. If we have offended any of our fellow beings or underrated Your forgiveness, have mercy on us. If we have mistrusted Your guidance, distorted Your power or ignored Your beckoning, good Lord, forgive. If we have squandered time, avoided challenges or misused people, forgive us. Move amongst us to give understanding and strength for all our days and for every experience.
May we use this day to honor and hallow Your Name. Amen.
