Journal of the House


First Regular Session, 92nd General Assembly




SEVENTEENTH DAY, Thursday, February 6, 2003


         Speaker Pro Tem Jetton in the Chair.


         Prayer by Father David Buescher.


          Lord of life and God of all consolation, we pause for a moment and remember that You are in our midst, that You create the very midst in which we can live, love, and work.


          The cold and snow bears down on some of the poor in our cities and on our farms today, the anxiety of a world in dread of terrorism and of the rumors of war surrounds us all. In any of this darkness, weakness, ignorance, or need, we ask a blessing of light, strength, and wisdom from You today.


          Fill these men and women, this solemn body, with Your good and Holy Spirit. Amen.


         The Pledge of Allegiance to the flag was recited.


         The Journal of the sixteenth day was approved as corrected.
