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 Zechariah 11:7: "I took two staffs; one I named Favor, and the other I named Unity, and I tended the sheep."
Let us pray. We thank You, heavenly Father, that You have blessed the people of this State. With favor and unity, we may be able to accomplish those things which are meaningful. Every day as these Representatives encounter hurdles and divisions in this place, guide them toward a common goal of working for the good of all. Bless those who have authority over us and guide them with favor and unity of purpose. 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.
