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 Psalm 33:2-3: "Make melody to him with an instrument of a song."
Let us pray. Lord God, thank You for the blessings of this week and for Your work in our life. Put a new song in our hearts as we finish this day and look forward to the relaxing days to come. Refresh us for service and a new start for all You have given us. As You have blessed our Nation, President, State and her leaders, continue to provide Your grace and favor. Keep our defenders of freedom in Your safe and loving arms. Hear our prayer O Lord. Amen.
