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 Psalm 111:9: "He sent redemption to His people. Holy and awesome is His Name."
Let us pray. God of might, thank You for the awesome gift of Your spirit. Continue Your gifts to each as they do the work to, for, and of the people. Thank You for the love and protection You have given this week, guiding their duties and responsibilities. Grant us rest on this weekend and renew us for service. Bless our leaders. Keep them focused on the needs of the people. Protect our defenders of freedom, at home and abroad, as they protect us. Heal the wounds, those seen and those hidden, of our brave warriors. Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayer. Amen.
