REGULAR SESSION BEGINNING TUESDAY, JANUARY 10, 2017
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 John 6:45: "And they shall all be taught by God."
Let us pray. Lord, help us to trust Your truth more than our knowledge. Guide us through the paths of life. Help us to see what You have done for us and others. Help us understand what You are trying to teach so we may be better prepared to help others. Protect these, Your people, as they return home to enjoy and be restful. For those who carry the burdens of life, grant them peace to live by. Bless our Nation, President, State, Governor, Speaker, staff, and all who carry the load for the rest of us. Protect our first responders and those who defend us, at home and abroad. Heal the wounds, those seen and those hidden, of our men and women who suffer and sacrifice for our freedom. Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayers. Amen.
