REGULAR SESSION BEGINNING TUESDAY, JANUARY 10, 2023
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 Genesis 9: "As for me, I am establishing my covenant with you and your descendants after you."
Let us pray. God, help us care for all living creatures on earth. Provide each and everyone the need to help us feed those with food and drink to satisfy all living things. Guide and keep these Representatives, Staff, and all their families in Your loving care as they go into the weekend. Remember our World, Nation, President, State, Governor, Speaker, Staff, and all who labor in this place of law and power. Bless our defenders of freedom and first responders as they protect us. Remember all of these, Your people. Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayers. Amen.
