The House assembled at 10:00 a.m.
Deliberations were opened with prayer as follows:
Almighty God, be with us in such a full measure that we can stand tall in the knowledge that we are children of the Heavenly Father. We are grateful for the wonderful way You have made us. Grant to us the unimpaired use of all the powers with which You have endowed us. Deliver us from foolish worry, from envy which fails to count life's blessings and from jealousy which scars the personality. Save us from regrets that cannot be altered. Give us the ability to accept the inevitable. And so cleansed of selfishness and from sin, may our lives bring joy to others and contentment to ourselves. We lift our prayer to a holy and righteous God. Amen.
