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 17:22: "A cheerful heart is a good medicine, but a downcast spirit dries up the bones."
Let us pray. Almighty God, give us cheerful hearts as we go about our duties. Provide for all who labor in these Halls of Government the will and desire to do what is right and best for our State. We pray for our leaders of Nation and State. Inspire them to be examples of greatness. Protect our defenders of freedom, as they protect us. Heal the wounds, those seen and those hidden, of our brave warriors. Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayer. Amen.
