The House assembled at 10:00 a.m.
Deliberations were opened with prayer as follows:
Most merciful God, we bow in these moments of prayer in acknowledgment of Your sovereignty and to ask for Your blessings. Remain close to us throughout the duties of this day that we may weave in the tapestry of life the radiant qualities of Your divine nature. As the flowers of springtime put on garments of gold and crimson and purple through their partnership with light, so may our lives become as the gardens of the Lord clothed with the bright blossoms of the nature of our God. With our hands in Yours, may others see our service and "glorify our Father in Heaven." We pray in thanksgiving and praise to Your name. Amen.
