Indicates New Matter
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 I Corinthians 10:3: "God is faithful, and He will not let you be tested beyond your strength, but with the testing He will also provide the way out that you may be able to endure it."
Let us pray. Almighty God, thank You for Your protection and care for us. Blessed by Your love and compassion along with strength, we ask that You continue to love us. Protect these, Your people, from all harm and danger. Provide for them every good thing which comes from Your bounty. Grant them a restful weekend and strengthen them for continued service. Bless our Nation, President, State, Governor, Speaker, staff, and all who labor in these Halls of Government. Protect those who protect us. Heal the wounds, those seen and those hidden, of those who suffer and sacrifice for our freedom. Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayer. Amen.
