Father, I’m both honored and humbled to call upon Your holy name in this solemn and sacred chamber. I begin by thanking You for Your blessings upon and watchful care over our beloved state—the state of Michigan. It is for Your continued blessing that we make petition today.

I ask, dear Father, for Your blessing, protection, and guidance for each of our great Senators—38 state Senators, especially our own 36th District Senator, the Honorable Jim Stamas. We appreciate him and the dedicated service that each of the state’s Senators; their distinguished service is so appreciated. Father, please protect both them and their families. Grant each member of this chamber wisdom and divine favor as each seeks to honorably serve and represent their constituents.

We ask for Your aid and strength to guide our Governor—Governor Rick Snyder—and his entire administration today, as well as all 110 members of the Michigan State House of Representatives on this day, April 24, 2018.

As a government and each public servant in our great state’s public service seeks to serve our citizens this day, we ask that Your gracious love and mercy would be the guiding force in every action and every decision. May honorable patriotism prevail over partisanship. May each Senator in this chamber be guided by the realization that they answer not only to their constituents but also to their Creator. It is Your grace and guidance that sought this day. We ask that each member in this chamber be a champion of life and liberty and a model of honor and integrity. We just ask, dear God, that You would bless them personally.

Thank you for Your blessing and joy for being a citizen of the great state of Michigan. Father, please grant Your continued blessing on the state of Michigan and the United States of America.

We ask this in Jesus’ precious name. Amen.

The President, Lieutenant Governor Calley, led the members of the Senate in recital of the Pledge of Allegiance.

Kappa Alpha Psi is a college Greek letter fraternity that welcomes men of all colors, creeds, and national origins. It was founded in 1911 on the campus of Indiana University in Bloomington. It is the first predominantly black Greek letter society founded west of the Appalachian Mountains still in existence. Kappa Alpha Psi has since grown to over 160,000 members with 721 undergraduate and alumni chapters, including every state of the United States as well as international chapters in Japan, Nigeria, and around the world. Kappa Alpha Psi fraternity has 21 active chapters in the state of Michigan.

The fund supports charitable causes such as the UNCS and Habitat for Humanity, as well as St. Jude Children’s Research Fund, which is the national philanthropic partner of the fraternity. Kappa Alpha Psi successfully extends educational and occupational guidance to young men, helping them accomplish their goals to give back through its Guide Right Program, Kappa League Student of the Year competition, and Kappa Alpha Psi Foundation.

Whereas, April is National Move More Month and nutrition is a strong focus of the Five Healthy Towns Foundation; and

Whereas, Healthy living, including good nutrition and an active lifestyle, prevents and delays chronic disease including diabetes, heart disease, some cancers, stroke, and others; and

Whereas, More Michigan residents smoke and our population is more obese than the national average, contributing up to 75% of the personal and financial cost of chronic diseases in Michigan; and

Whereas, Michigan spends more than $13 billion per year in unnecessary health care costs, much of which is related to smoking and obesity; and

Whereas, The state of Michigan and its Legislature are committed to the prevention of chronic disease; and

Whereas, In the Governor’s Health and Wellness Message, in September 2011, he stated, “Our vision is for Michiganders to be healthy, productive individuals, living in communities that support health and wellness, with ready access to an affordable, person-centered, and community-based system of care”; and

Whereas, Healthy living includes proper nutrition, regular physical activity, avoiding tobacco and other unhealthy substances, as well as a connection to a community; and

Whereas, Five Healthy Towns Foundation engages their community to facilitate healthy living by supporting and managing four Wellness Centers dedicated to health and wellness activities, education, prevention, and community edification; and

Whereas, Five Healthy Towns Foundation engages communities to support healthy living through grassroots coalitions to encourage healthy choices like eating better, moving more, avoiding tobacco and other unhealthy substances, and making healthy connections in their community; and

Whereas, Five Healthy Town Foundation engages with governmental and other state agencies and organizations to support healthy living including the Department of Natural Resources, Michigan Fitness Foundation, Michigan Health Endowment Fund, Department of Transportation, Michigan State University Extension, Department of Education, Healthy Kids Healthy Michigan, Michigan Farmer’s Market Association, and others to cultivate personal and community health and wellness; and

Whereas, The achievement of healthy living will significantly reduce the risk of developing chronic disease, reduce disability and the risk of premature death secondary to chronic disease, and reduce spending on healthcare; and

Whereas, Living healthy will improve the quality and satisfaction of the lives of Michigan’s citizens; now, therefore, be it

Resolved by the Senate, That we recognize the importance of healthy living and the importance it holds for residents of Michigan; and be it further

Resolved, That we commend the Five Healthy Towns Association on its efforts to ensure healthy living for residents of Michigan.
