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 Lamentations 3:10: "You heard my plea; do not close your ears to my cry for relief."
Let us pray. O Lord, our Lord, as we come to the close of another week, we give thanks for Your caring for us and giving us strength and wisdom to do the work You have entrusted to us. Continue to care for Your people in these times of hardship and strain on our State's families. Give us the will and the way to comfort and help all those in need. For those who lead us, give them guidance and wisdom to carry their burdens. Protect our defenders of freedom at home and abroad as they protect us. Hear our prayer, O Lord. Amen.
