Journal of the House


First Regular Session, 93rd General Assembly




FOURTEENTH DAY, Monday, January 31, 2005

 

The House met pursuant to adjournment.


            Speaker Pro Tem Bearden in the Chair.


            Prayer by Reverend James Earl Jackson.


              Heavenly Father, You are our portion and our cup [of blessing]; You hold our future in Your hand.


              O how we revel in the democratic process and appreciate our freedom to do so. May the newly formed governments of this world come to experience and appreciate democracy as we do. May we never take it for granted.


              We are always aware of Your presence and because You are at our right hand, we will not be shaken nor will we be sidetracked from the assignment before us.


              May we be those who walk in our integrity, do what is right in Your sight, speak the truth from our heart, refuse to criticize one another, do not harbor evil in our heart, and who keep our word whatever the cost.


              May Your grace be sufficient for all we do.


              In the majestic name of Your Son we pray. Amen.


            The Pledge of Allegiance to the flag was recited.


            There was a moment of silence in memory of former Representative Maurice Lawson.

 

            The Journal of the thirteenth day was approved as printed by the following vote:
