Deliberations were opened with prayer by the Chaplain of the House of Representatives, the Rev. Dr. Alton C. Clark as follows:
We thank You, Heavenly Father, for these moments of prayer when we can concentrate our minds on You and away from the world, and thereby get our bearings. Teach us to know that the good we do today will last in happiness into tomorrow's activities. Make us so dedicated to the tasks at hand that we can think of every yesterday without regret and look to every tomorrow without fear. Grant to us a faith that persists, a hope that endures, a loyalty to the best that is unfailing.
Hear with favor, Lord God, in this our prayer offered in praise and thanksgiving. Amen.
