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 Joshua 1:9: "The Lord your God is with you wherever you go."
Let us pray. Almighty God, direct us this day that we might do Your will in everything you have established for us to do. Give these, Your people, the tools of courage and wisdom to do the work assigned them. Bless them with Your love and caring. For our leaders of Nation and State and for all those in authority, protect and keep them in Your care. 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.
