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 2 Chronicles 29:11: "My sons, do not now be negligent, for the Lord has chosen you to stand in his presence to minister to him, and to be his ministers and make offerings to him."
Let us pray. Almighty God, we give You thanks and praise for Your presence in our lives. We accept our duty to give our prayers to You for blessing us. Keep these Representatives and staff in Your loving care. Grant them a safe and restful weekend. We give thanks to our defenders of freedom and first responders who protect and care for us. Bless our Nation, President, State, Governor, Speaker, staff, and all who serve in these Halls of Government. 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.
