REGULAR SESSION BEGINNING TUESDAY, JANUARY 12, 2021
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 19:1: "The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky proclaims its handiwork."
Let us pray. We give You thanks Almighty God, that You restore us with Your caring ways. Refresh us as we go into the weekend. Keep us safe and in good health. Give us the confidence of faith, O Lord, that we may be so bold as to share Your love with others. Bless our defenders of freedom and first responders. Look in favor upon our World, Nation, President, State, Governor, Speaker, Staff, and all who contribute to this great cause. Protect us and Your people in Ukraine. Look in favor upon 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.
