Journal of the House


First Regular Session, 93rd General Assembly




THIRTY-FIFTH DAY, Tuesday, March 8, 2005

The House met pursuant to adjournment.


            Speaker Jetton in the Chair.


            Prayer by Father Donald W. Lammers.


              Almighty God, Creator and Lord of all that is, You are the Creator of life; You are the Lord of life. We thank You for our own life, for the lives of our children and grandchildren, for the life of every member of our family. There is no price tag we could place on their lives. The life of each person receives its value from You. You alone are the Lord of life.


              The topics we face in the agenda of each day affect the lives of the people we represent; some topics affect the very existence of the life of some. Holy God, this day bless us with the gift of right judgment and courage, that our deliberation, our communication, and our actions may remain anchored in the truth that You alone are Lord of life.


              We pray to You, our God, forever and ever. Amen.


            The Pledge of Allegiance to the flag was recited.


            The Speaker appointed the following to act as Honorary Pages for the Day, to serve without compensation: Brianna Harmon, Joel Cox, Erin Scheiderer, Kelsey Fessler, Ryan Naylor, Gregory Batteast, Croix Sterling and Mariah Sterling.
