The House assembled at 10:00 a.m.
Deliberations were opened with prayer as follows:
Our Father God, we thank You for these moments of prayer when the veil is lifted and the barriers lowered as we draw near to our God. May the time of prayer and the time of work be interwoven into one masterpiece. Help us to do both as a part of Your plan and to Your honor. Amid all the pace of things temporal may we always be inspired by things invisible and eternal. When we cannot see the distant scene, help us to take one step at a time and trust our God to the rest. Inspire us to build on "the eternal Rock of ages." Amen.
