Indicates New Matter
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 Habakkuk 2:4: "The righteous live by their faith."
Let us pray. O God, we live in a world tainted by turmoil and ugliness. Help these, Your people, who spend so much time doing the work required of them. Help each of these Members to trust in You always, even when life seems hopeless. Preserve them and our leaders of both State and Nation. Give them rest from their labors of the week. Protect those who 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 prayer. Amen.
