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:
Loving God, Your compassion is beyond our comprehension. Open our eyes to see the manifestation of Your presence all around us, make us confident in the assurance of Your power. Help us to be what You intended us to be. Make us to feel always Your presence, and take from us anything that crowds joy from our lives. Give us the faith to trust You for guidance in the choices that we have to make. Help us to do our best today and not borrow the troubles of tomorrow, lest stomach ulcers be the badge of our lack of faith.
Hear us, Lord, and help us always. Amen.
