REGULAR SESSION BEGINNING TUESDAY, JANUARY 8, 2013
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 8:3: "When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars that you have established; what are human beings that you are mindful of them, mortals that you care for them?"
Let us pray. Thank You, O Creator, for stars shining, birds singing, and the rest of Your amazing world. Put into our hearts and minds that we are blessed to be in this wonderful creation You have made. Grant us Your grace and peace during this day and in the days to come. Bestow Your gifts of peace and hearts filled with blessings for our Nation, President, State, Governor, Speaker, staff, and all who serve in these Halls of Government. Protect our defenders of freedom, at home and abroad, as they protect us. Heal the wounds, those seen and those hidden, of our brave warriors. Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayer. Amen.
