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 147:13-14: "For he strengthens the bars of your gates; he blesses your children within you. He grants peace within your borders; he fills you with the finest of wheat."
Let us pray. Holy God, creator, redeemer, and comforter, uphold those who are weak and vulnerable. Strengthen everyone who struggles with afflictions or disappointments. Guide those in positions of authority. Guide those who labor to get the job done with accuracy. Be present with them during the weekend and restore their energy for the work ahead. 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.
After corrections to the Journal of the proceedings of yesterday, the SPEAKER ordered it confirmed.
