  Reverend Dr. John Adams, First Baptist Church, Mantachie, 
Mississippi, offered the following prayer:
  Our Father, we bow before Your majestic throne today. We acknowledge 
that You are in Heaven and we are on Your good Earth.
  Our prayers are given for each one in this Chamber, that Your love 
and wisdom be in each life. Today, we pray for our Speaker and each 
legislator, that Your hands will guide their hands.
  Father, I know today that the best thing that I can do for these men 
and women is to pray for them. Give them courage to make the right 
decisions. Let the laws coming forth from these hallowed Halls be 
pleasing to You and be a benefit to our fellow man.
  Allow these leaders to have a breath of fresh air today and to have 
the Spirit of God's Son in helping others. We ask Your blessings on our 
United States of America.
  In the name of God's Son, we pray.
