The House assembled at 10:00 a.m.
Deliberations were opened with prayer as follows:
Father of love and compassion, in whose presence our restless souls find peace, be always our chart and compass as we travel the unknown journey of life. Spare us from pride and arrogance, from discord and confusion, and from that which embitters and divides. Make us to know the laws of God and to obey them. May selfishness be burned from our hearts, prejudices be purged from our minds, and our will be lost in Yours. Amen.
