Journal of the House



First Regular Session, 91st General Assembly


NINETEENTH DAY, Thursday, February 1, 2001



Speaker Pro Tem Abel in the Chair.



Prayer by Father David Buescher.



Gracious God, we begin a new month today. It may be the shortest month of the year, but it is one which will make many demands on these representatives. Give them the gift of deep leadership this day and this month. Offer them the power of that profound sense of responsibility, which leads by justice, indeed, but also by compassion.



May they have the stick-to-it-iveness that will handle not only the ideas, but also the details. And, perhaps most importantly, give them joy and delight in their work, the deep happiness which erupts from the inner knowledge that we do Your work and build Your world. Amen.



The Pledge of Allegiance to the flag was recited.
