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 Ecclesiastes 10:12: "Words from a wise man's mouth are gracious, but a fool is consumed by his own lips."
Let us pray. God of all truth, help us make life choices that are pleasing to You. Lead us today as we again work for the goodness for all. Direct our words and our thoughts to accomplish to work for the people we are called to serve. Be a blessing to our Nation, President, State, Governor, Speaker, that all may be done for the sake of fairness and honor. Protect our defenders of freedom at home and abroad as they protect us. Hear us, O Lord, as we pray. Amen.
