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 Psalm 31:14-15: "I trust in you, O Lord; I say you are my God. My times are in your hand."
Let us pray. Gracious God, we thank You for Your care for us during this week and ask for Your continuing compassion and love for us as we go into the weekend. Provide for us every needful thing and grant us rest and mercy so we may continue to serve this State. Bless our leaders of Nation and State. Guide our Speaker and staff to do good work. Protect our defenders of freedom as they protect us. Heal the wounds, those seen and those hidden, of our brave warriors who suffer and sacrifice for our freedom. Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayers. Amen.
