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 Exodus 34:9: "Moses did not know that the skin of his face shone because he had been talking with God."
Let us pray. Creator of heaven and earth, thank You for Your steadfast love manifested in the glory of Your creation. Strengthen our resolve, our faith, so that when circumstances are difficult, we might remember Your promise to be with us always. Make Your presence known to each this day and in the days to come. Bless our Nation, President, State, Governor, Speaker and all who serve. Remember our men and women who serve as our defenders of freedom. Protect and keep them safe. Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayer. Amen.
