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, the Source of all goodness and worthy of our praise, we pray not for easy lives, but that we may be strong persons. We do not pray for tasks equal to our abilities, but for strength to meet our tasks. We do not pray for easy solutions to complex problems, but rather that You might show us the way to solve them. Give us, then, the courage and the wisdom for all that shall confront us that we may hear at the day's end: "Well done, good and faithful servant." Amen.
