                     EIGHTEENTH LEGISLATURE - FIRST SESSION                    
Juneau, Alaska                     Wednesday          January 20, 1993         
                                    Tenth Day                                  
Pursuant to adjournment the Senate was called to order by President            
Halford at 11:23 a.m.                                                          
The roll showed eighteen members present.  Senators Donley and                 
Ellis were excused from a call of the Senate.                                  
The prayer was offered by the Chaplain, Pastor Johnny Jackson of               
the First Baptist Church of Juneau.   Senator Leman moved and                  
asked unanimous consent that the prayer be spread.  Without                    
objection, it was so ordered.                                                  
Thy word is a lamp unto my feet, and a light unto                             
my path.                                                                       
     Psalm 119:105                                                             
Heavenly Father:                                                              
In our lives and in our service, there are so many                            
roads that we could travel.  This very day we will                             
be faced with dozens of decisions; and whether                                 
large or small, each one will affect not only our                              
lives but the lives of others.  All around us we hear                          
competing voices telling us what to do; and when                               
we look ahead, the way before us is crisscrossed                               
with paths that go off in all directions.                                      
How easily we might make the wrong decision, or                               
be tempted along the wrong path, if we did not                                 
have Your word to guide us!  Thank You for not                                 
leaving us to our own devices, but instead giving us                           
a word that is constant and unchanging, steadfast                              
and sure.

Help us today, O Lord, to shun the paths of                                   
darkness, and to walk, unstumbling, in Your light.                             
May the shining lamp of Your righteous law                                     
illuminate all that we think and say and do.                                   
In the Name of Him Who is the light of the world;                             
Jesus Christ the Lord.  Amen
