REGULAR SESSION BEGINNING TUESDAY, JANUARY 10, 2017
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 119:34: "Give me understanding, and I shall keep your teaching; I shall keep it with all my heart."
Let us pray. Almighty God, our Father, thank You for blessing us in times of need and times of joy. Put into our hearts and minds Your teachings so all of us will hear Your call to do justice, love, and mercy and walk with You. Bless each of these, Your people, as they go into the weekend. Give them rest and assurance that they are cared for and loved. Bless the leaders of our Nation, our President, State, Governor, Speaker, staff, and all who serve in this State. Protect our first responders and those who defend us at home and abroad. Heal the wounds, those seen and those hidden, of our women and men who suffer and sacrifice for our freedom. Lord, in Your mercy, hear our prayers. Amen.
After corrections to the Journal of the proceedings of yesterday, the SPEAKER ordered it confirmed.
