Journal of the Senate



The Senate met pursuant to adjournment.

President Maxwell in the Chair.

Reverend Carl Gauck offered the following prayer:

"A word fitly spoken is like gold." (Proverbs 25:11)

Gracious God, we are so mindful how people listen closely to what we have to say; some to rejoice in what is said, others listen to criticize and disagree. Help us to prepare well for what we have to say and write, to be efficient and aware of our audience. And may we be ever mindful of the power of our words and the good and harm they can do. Bless us with the study and discipline we need to convey what is needed to be accomplished here. In Your Holy Name we pray. Amen.

The Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag was recited.
