The House assembled at 12:00 noon.
Deliberations were opened with prayer by Rev. Charles E. Seastrunk, Jr., as follows:

Our thought for today is from Judges 16:28: "Then Samson called to the Lord and said, 'Lord God, remember me and strengthen me.'"

Let us pray. O Lord, build up our faith with the strength of your love and devotion to us. Guide these Representatives and staff as they continue to serve the people by producing meaningful legislation. Give them grace as they work to fulfill the needs of the people of this State. Give them wisdom, strength, courage, and integrity as they work this week. Give them Your blessings. Look in favor upon our Nation, President, State, Governor, Speaker, staff, and all who advise and serve in any way. Protect our first responders and those who defend us at home and abroad as they protect us. Heal the wounds, those seen and those hidden, of our women and men who suffer and sacrifice for our freedom. Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayers. Amen.

Pursuant to Rule 6.3, the House of Representatives was led in the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America by the SPEAKER.

After corrections to the Journal of the proceedings of Friday, April 7, the SPEAKER ordered it confirmed.
