The House assembled at 10:00 a.m.
Deliberations were opened with prayer as follows:
Our Father God, with a new day more opportunities come from Your good and gracious hand. Keep us aware that each of us has an important part to play in the business of this day. As we go forward in it, may its fleeting hours remind us that life is too short to be little. So upon those who have been entrusted with leadership in government, pour, we pray, a double portion of Your guidance and wisdom. Make us worthy of the past and equal to the present. Undergird us with Your strength and keep clear before us Your beckoning hand. We pray to a good and gracious God. Amen.
