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:
O God our Father, since we do not know what this day will bring, keep us ever strong and ready for any task or demand that may come our way. If we must face some hard decision, be near to guide us. Arm our wills with Your strength so that we may be strong to obey You. Spare us from ill-considered speech and from cowardly silence. Keep clear our minds and our lips from bitterness and resentment. Grant us Your light to make plain our paths that amid the tension of testing we may ever possess an inner certainty which holds us in undeviating devotion to the right. Bless our worthwhile efforts with Your help. Amen.
