House will come to order, sergeant at arms to close the doors. Today's prayer will be offered by representative Acher. We'd ask all members and visitors to please stand. Representative Archer recognized for the prayer. If you will join me in prayer. Dear heavenly father we pause this morning in the stillness and quiet of our brief time where we reflect on you as Creator in Lord of all that we see. We pray for our president and those who are in congress because you've told us to Father and we lift them up to you, that they are guided by your hand to mercy and love. Lord I also pray for us, as we undertake the business and while there's no business today in the chamber, many things are going on and many people are working. I pray that you make us fruitful and humble and yield to who you are. So that we may live peace born quite lives in reverence. Oh God, there's many people who are struggling, both colleagues and friends and we lift them up to you that you meet them in their time of need, and many of our fellow citizens across this state. We pray that you would meet their needs. And bring us together in unity and love and the great blessing of this United States that you've given us. That we hold in seriousness, the blessings of liberty and truth, and that we guard our affairs in mercy and love, in Jesus name I pray. Amen.  I pledge allegiance to the flag of The United States America and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
