The House assembled at 10:00 A.M.
Deliberations were opened with prayer by the Chaplain of the House of Representatives, the Rev. Dr. Alton C. Clark as follows:
Almighty God, our Father, lead us into the green pastures of Your presence and beside the still waters of Your leadership that we may have our strength renewed. Grant us wisdom for facing the times at hand and courage for living in our day. Make us equal to the challenges of this day and more than a match for whatever we face. Keep our faith steady, our hope stable, our desire for good strong - that we may be instruments of Your will and vehicles of Your truths.
Cause us to pray always with the Psalmist: "Lead me into the land of uprightness." (Psalm 143:1b) Amen.
