Indicates Matter Stricken
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 Proverbs 15:3: "The eyes of the Lord are in every place, keeping watch on the evil and the good."
Let us pray. Lord, we thank You for the gifts You have so graciously provided for us. We ask now for Your continual care for each of us as we strive to do the work assigned to us. We give thanks that You watch over and keep us in Your care. Grant us a relaxing weekend and nourish us for a new week of work. Bless our National and State Leaders. Protect our defenders of freedom as they protect us. Heal the wounds of our brave warriors, those seen and those hidden. Hear our prayer, O Lord. Amen.
