The House assembled at 10:00 a.m.
Deliberations were opened with prayer as follows:
Almighty God, infinite, eternal and unchanging, we confess that without You our human strength and wisdom are insufficient for the urgent needs committed to us. Be, then, constantly with us to guide us in actions great and small, that serving You with our whole effort, all around will be a better place because we have lived and worked in it today. Fill our needs in abundance of Your wisdom. Beyond the shadows of the days in which we live, show us the shining glory of the things You would have us to do. And to You shall be all praise and thanksgiving. Amen.
