The House assembled at 10:00 a.m..

Our thought for today is from Psalm 31:19: "O how abundant is your goodness that you have laid up for those who fear you, and accomplish for those who take refuge in you, in the sight of everyone!"

Let us pray. Gracious God, we are grateful for Your guidance and the direction that You provide for these Representatives and staff as they work through this week. You have blessed us in so many ways, now give them safe travel and rest as they renew their lives with their families. Bless our Nation, President, President-elect, State, Governor, Speaker, staff, and all who contribute to the success of this great cause. Protect our defenders of freedom as they protect us. Heal the wounds, those seen and those hidden, of our men and women as they suffer and sacrifice for our freedom. Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayers. Amen.
