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, Giver of life and all the blessings that come with it, give us the desire and the determination to use these blessings wisely. When the next step is not clear, may we wait patiently for the way You would have us to go. Store our minds with Your truths and our hearts with a love like Yours. Keep us calm in crisis, strong under stress, triumphant in temptation. Show us how to live better, to serve more effectively, and to follow You more faithfully. Be especially near to those whose lot in life is hard, the lonely, the ill, the bereaved, and those from whom joy and hope have fled.
And to You, Lord, we give our praise and thanksgiving. Amen.
