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:
Eternal Father, as we draw near to You in prayer, draw near to us - not just in these moments of prayer but throughout this day and every day. You know us better than we know ourselves. Without You our judgements are frail and our efforts are weak. Grant that all who serve in this place may think on "whatsoever things are just, whatsoever things are pure, whatsoever things are lovely, and whatsoever things are of good report" and thus come to possess "the peace of God that passes all understanding".
Yours is the power and the glory, now and forever. Amen.
