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 Isaiah 45:7: "I form light and create darkness, I make weal and create woe; I the Lord do all these things."
Let us pray. Almighty and merciful God, You have made us in Your image to do the work set aside for the people of this State. Grant these Representatives and staff the will and desire to carry out their duties. Keep them safe in Your love and favor as they go into the weekend and give them rest and a time for family and friends. Bless our defenders of freedom and first responders. Remember our World, 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 men and women who suffer and sacrifice for our freedom. Lord, in Your Mercy, hear our prayers. Amen.
