Deliberations were opened with prayer by the Chaplain of the House of Representatives, the Rev. Dr. Alton C. Clark as follows:
Eternal God our Father, Whose ways are truth and Whose concern for us never fails, we thank You for this altar of prayer. Cleanse our hearts and clarify our minds that we may make our way through this day in the consciousness that we have done our best. Enable us to practice good will, without faltering, because we are following Your way. In our relationship with one another, help us to be more understanding, more tolerant. May we so live out our lives that others, seeing us, may be persuaded to do good to those about them.
Thank You, Lord, for this privilege of prayer. Amen.
