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 26:8: "In the path of your judgments, O Lord, we wait for you; your name and your renown are the soul's desire."
Let us pray. O Lord, You have kept these Representatives in Your care during trying times this week, and we thank You for Your protection while working on our State's business. Keep these women and men in Your loving care and refresh them with Your blessings and peace. We know it is by Your hand, that we are able to accomplish the duties set before us. Bless our Nation, President, State, Governor, Speaker, staff, and all who support these leaders. Protect our defenders of freedom as they protect us. Heal the wounds of our brave warriors, those seen and those unseen. Hear us, O Lord, as we pray. Amen.
