REGULAR SESSION BEGINNING TUESDAY, JANUARY 8, 2019
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 86:1: "Incline Your ear, O Lord, and answer me for I am poor and needy."
Let us pray. Lord, hear us as we pray to You. Listen to our prayer for our Assembly and the work You have called us to do. Keep these people in Your love and care. Bless and sustain these men and women and their families and protect them from all harm. Bless our Representatives and staff as they go into the weekend. Give them rest and reflection on their own lives. Bless our defenders of freedom and first responders as they care for us and protect us. Bestow Your blessings on our Nation, President, State, Governor, Speaker, staff, and all who contribute to the success of this great cause. 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.
