The US Vice President has encouraged Christians to “hold fast” to Jesus and prayer during difficult times.
Mike Pence was a guest speaker at the First Baptist Church in Dallas, Texas, and urged members to pray for the nation and rely on God to get America “through these challenging times.”
Christian Headlines reports that the VP spoke to the crowd for almost 30 minutes, punctuating his address with quotes from Abraham Lincoln, the founding fathers, and Martin Luther King Jr, alongside scriptures such as Phillippians 4:6-7.
Speaking at the church’s “Celebrate Freedom Sunday” event, Mr Pence called prayer and faith the keys to deal with the current crises gripping the US.
President Trump’s deputy emphasised the importance of faith, saying that the foundation of America is freedom, and the foundation of freedom is faith.
