The House will come to order. Members will take their seats. Visitors retire from the Chamber. Sergeant-at-Arms will close the doors. Members and visitors will please silence all cellular phones, personal electronic devices. The prayer will be offered by Representative Rick Glazier. Members and visitors in the gallery please stand. [SPEAKER CHANGES] This is an adaptation of a prayer, "Where Can We Find Hope." There is holiness when we love and serve without any thought of reward or hope for personal gain. There's holiness when we promote family harmony and when we seek to unite others near and far. There's holiness when we share with others our resources, our ideas, our enthusiasm. There's holiness when we are willing to be laughed at for what we believe in. There is holiness when we relieve suffering, visit the sick and comfort the bereaved. There is holiness when we remember the lonely and the neglected to bring cheer into a dark corner. There is holiness when we sacrifice time and energy to teach our children. And there is holiness when we pray in truth and humility for the strength and grace to lead and not follow, act and not just talk, and to remind ourselves that each day brings a new opportunity to be a better person. And let us stay humble. [SPEAKER CHANGES] Members, pleas remain standing for the Pledge of Allegiance. [SPEAKER CHANGES] I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, to the Republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, for liberty and justice for all.
