The House assembled at 10:00 A.M.
Deliberations were opened with prayer by the Chaplain of the House of Representatives, the Rev. Dr. Alton C. Clark as follows:
Almighty God, Whose will we would discover and Whose work we would do, keep our visions clear, our minds keen, our judgments sound, and our motives pure. Save us from minimizing what is important and magnifying what is unimportant. Grant us the ability to separate the true from the false. Make of us wise craftsmen in the art of government. Strengthen us by Your presence, and lead us through the toilsome hours to evening time with our work well done, made strong as we heed the words of the Psalmist: "even from everlasting to everlasting, You are God" - Psalms 90:2b.
In the Name of Jesus, our Lord, we pray.
