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 Psalm 80:3: "Restore us, O God; let your face shine upon us and we shall be saved."
Let us pray. Gracious Lord, let Your light shine upon these Representatives and staff as they do the work for the people. Enable them to provide the services necessary for this State to be a light shining on the hill. Bless these Members and staff as we go into the weekend. Give them rest and relaxation to refuel for the week ahead. Look in favor upon our Nation, President, State, Governor, Speaker, staff, and all who contribute to the success of this Assembly. Bless and protect our defenders of freedom and first responders as they protect us. Heal the wounds, those seen and those hidden, of our brave warriors who suffer and sacrifice for our freedom. Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayers. Amen.
