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 64:5: "You come to the help of those who gladly do right, who remember your ways."
Let us pray. Gracious God, remember us, we beseech You, in our work this day. May we glorify You by honest work. Hold us in the palm of Your hand and protect us from all harm. Give us a restful weekend, that we may return refreshed for our duties. Bless all who lead us in our work together. Bless our defenders of freedom as they protect us. Hear us, O Lord, as we pray. Amen.
