Indicates New Matter
The House assembled at 10:00 a.m.
Deliberations were opened with prayer by Rev. Charles E. Seastrunk, Jr. as follows:
Our thought for today is from Jeremiah 51:46: "Do not lose heart or be afraid when rumors are heard in the land."
Let us pray. Heavenly Father, thank You for Your caring and protection this week. Let our work this day be devoted to Your glory and to the people in whom we serve. Continue Your care for us and bring us again to work for the good of this State. Look in kindness upon our Nation, our President, our State and her leaders. Bless and keep our defenders of freedom safe. In Your Holy name. Amen.
