On the first day of 2015, we’re treated to something very special compiled by the office of Speaker Pro Tem Paul Stam.
His hard-working staff has transcribed the opening prayers which have been offered in the North Carolina House of Representatives on each day of session for the last four years (2011 to 2014). Special thanks to Christin Danchi, Former Legislative & Research Assistant; Dylan Finch, Intern; Anne Murtha, Legislative Assistant; Amy O’Neal, Former Research Assistant; and Amanda Vuke, Former Legislative Assistant for Representative Bill Cook for their hard work compiling this collection.

We can think of no better way to begin an inspirational start to the New Year. Best wishes for a peaceful and prosperous 2015.
