The Senate met pursuant to adjournment.

The Reverend Carl Gauck offered the following prayer:

Calvin Coolidge once observed: "One with the law is a majority."

Gracious God, thank You for watching over our travels and bringing us safely back to our place of service and ministry. Help us never to underestimate the little things of life; for You, Oh Lord, use little things to confound the wise. Help us, we pray, to be faithful to the little things of life, for they wield tremendous power. And help us to see that You can use every citizen for service here in this state, for each of us is loved and important to You. In Your Holy Name we pray. Amen.
