REGULAR SESSION BEGINNING TUESDAY, JANUARY 12, 2021
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 Lamentations 3:26: "It is good that one should wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord."
Let us pray. Almighty and most merciful God, it is with praise and thanksgiving that we can quietly and gratefully wait for Your blessings. And Holy One, give us patience to wait upon You. Keep us focused on You alone. Guide us in all we do and say so that You may be glorified. Bless our defenders of freedom and first responders. Look in favor upon our Nation, President, State, Governor, Speaker, and staff. Bless us and care for us as we go into the weekend. Renew us by Your spirit. Heal the wounds, those seen and those hidden, of our brave warriors as they suffer and sacrifice for our freedom. Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayers. Amen.
