Indicates New Matter
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 Hebrews 13:2: "Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by doing that some have entertained angels without knowing."
Let us pray. Help us dear Lord, to reach out to those in need, remembering that all people are Your children. Remember us as we end this week of work and service to our State. Give us rest and refresh us for another week to serve. Bless our Nation, President, State, Governor, Speaker, this Honorable Assembly, and all who labor in these Halls of Government. Protect our defenders of freedom at home and abroad as they protect us. Hear our prayer, O Lord. Amen.
