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 James 1:17: "Every generous act of giving, with every perfect gift, is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow due to change."
Let us pray. We give thanks for the love and care You have provided this week for these Representatives, staff, and all who serve in this Assembly. We are grateful for the guidance You have provided these men and women during the week. Protect and care for them over the weekend and keep them safe. Give them rest and relaxation and prepare them for the week ahead. We give thanks for our defenders of freedom and first responders as they care for and protect us. Bless this great land You have given us, our 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.
