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 Micah 4:5: "We will walk in the name of the Lord our God forever and ever."

Let us pray. Loving God, guide these men and women who have been chosen to serve in this place. May they walk faithfully with You every day. You bid us to walk together and be identified with Your will that it becomes our own. May they express their loyalty with their whole being. Bless our leaders of Nation and State, our President, Governor, Speaker, staff, and all who serve. Protect our first responders and those who defend us at home and abroad. 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 PRO TEMPORE.

After corrections to the Journal of the proceedings of yesterday, the SPEAKER PRO TEMPORE ordered it confirmed.
