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 43:1: "Do not fear, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine."
Let us pray. God, thank You for Your presence that gives us freedom for living. Direct our lives this day as we work together to improve our relationship with those around us. Free us to live without fear. As You accompany us through the day help us to live in love and liberty. Bless our Nation, President, State, Governor, Speaker and all who serve in government. Protect our defenders of freedom as they protect us. In the name of our Lord. Amen.
