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 27:13: "I believe that I shall see the goodness of the Lord in the land of the living."
Let us pray. Loving and grace-filled Spirit, we offer our thanks and praise for Your presence in our lives, our faith, and in our growth. Protect us from all evil and continue to lead these Representatives and staff with wisdom and integrity. Grant each one Your comfort and give them rest to continue into another week of work. Bless our Nation, President, State, Governor, Speaker, staff, and all who labor in this Vineyard. Protect our defenders of freedom as they protect us. Heal the wounds, those seen and those hidden, of those who suffer and sacrifice for our freedom. Lord of Grace, hear our prayers. Amen.
