Indicates Matter Stricken
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 Isaiah 58:8a: "Your light shall break forth like the dawn and your healing shall spring up quickly."
Let us pray. Lord, we realize You come to us secretly in many ways. Give us a new sense of vision to be aware of Your ways in which You lead and guide us. Renew us with a special sense of Your presence. Lead us as we finish the work this week and protect us in all we do. Give us rest and a renewed spirit of service. Bless our Nation, President, State, Governor and Representatives, staff, Speaker and all who carry the responsibility of leadership. Keep our defenders of freedom safe as they protect us. In the name of our Lord we pray. Amen.
