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 Psalm 95:1: "Come, let us sing for joy to the Lord; let us shout aloud to the Rock of our salvation."
Let us pray. Spirit of the living God, You are present not just in my world, but in me. Help me to live every moment of this day with You, thinking of service to others. Grant us a restful, relaxing weekend and strength for the week ahead. Bless our Nation, State, and her leaders with integrity and courage. Protect our defenders of freedom at home and abroad as they protect us. Hear us, O Lord, as we pray. Amen.
