Vice President Mike Pence urged Americans to pray for the nation on Election Day during his speech at President Trump’s final rally Monday in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
“Finally, this is just from me and from my family. As I’ve traveled around this country the last four years, I’ve become convinced this is a freedom-loving nation. And this is a nation of faith,” Pence told the crowd as they cheered:
“And so if you’re inclined like the Pences are to bow the head and bend the knee at your house from time to time, I’d encourage you to do that in the next day,” the vice president continued:
When you pray, pray with confidence. In these challenging times where it seems like there’s more that divides us than any time in my lifetime, we ought to claim those ancient words that have seen Americans through much more challenging times than we could possibly imagine.
The words of an ancient promise that say, if his people, who are called by his name, will humble themselves and pray and turn, that he’ll do like he’s always done, in the long and storied history of this great nation, he’ll hear from Heaven, and he’ll heal this land. This one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
“So, pray for America. Pray for all the American people. It’ll make a difference,” Pence concluded.
