Indicates New Matter
The House assembled at 10:00 a.m.
Deliberations were opened with prayer as follows:
O God, our Father, the real presence of all who will claim that presence, we close the doors of the noisy world as we pause at this alter of prayer to acknowledge Your sovereignty and our need of Your help. You have made us for Yourself, and our souls are restless until they find peace in You. May our failures prove but stepping stones to our better selves. Make us builders of roads of concord which shall make rough places smooth and deep ruts level, and of bridges of understanding which shall span chasms over which glad and eager feet shall walk in a world of peace. Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayer. Amen.
