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 32:8: "I will instruct you and teach you the way you should go; I will counsel you with my eye upon you."
Let us pray. Holy God, thank You for the precious gift of life and Your eternal love for us. Guide us by Your hand and lead us to do what is right and good for us and for those we serve. Keep us in Your holy care and provide us with every needful thing. Keep us safe as we complete this week and grant us rest and peace on the weekend. Look in favor upon our Nation, President, President-elect, State, Governor, Speaker, staff, and all who contribute to this great cause. Protect those who protect us. Heal the wounds, those seen and those hidden, of our men and women 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.
