REGULAR SESSION BEGINNING TUESDAY, JANUARY 08, 2013
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 55:3: "Incline your ear and come to me; listen, so that you may live."
Let us pray. Almighty God, source of all things, open our ears so we might hear and listen to Your words as we strive to do the best we can for those with whom we serve. Guide us through these days as You led the people long ago. Look in favor upon our Nation, President, State, Governor, Speaker, staff, and all who lead. Send Your spirit to guide each one. Grant us a safe weekend and renew us for the week ahead. Protect our defenders of freedom, as they protect us. Heal the wounds, those seen and those hidden, of our brave warriors. Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayer. Amen.
Pursuant to Rule 6.3, the House of Representatives was led in the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America by the SPEAKER.
After corrections to the Journal of the proceedings of yesterday, the SPEAKER ordered it confirmed.
At 10:10 a.m. the House, in accordance with the ruling of the SPEAKER, adjourned to meet at 12:00 noon, Tuesday, February 5.
