On Wednesday, Family Research Council, The Call to Conscience, and Focus on the Family Action held a webcast where they were praying about concerns with the health care bill.
Tony Perkins, FRC Action President stated:
"There have been a number of critical hours in American history. Our nation has struggled mightily and, under God, always risen to the challenges before us. Tonight, we will face this moral crisis by taking action and obeying the Biblical mandate to pray for our nation and its leaders."
Representative Michele Bachmann, the congresswoman from Minnesota, led the attendees in prayer for our nation. She asked for God's forgiveness, knowing that each of us has fallen short and missed the mark. Rep. Bachmann understands America's foundation of faith, and was bold in acknowledging that America would be wise to seek God once again. We need more people in positions of authority who are not too proud to humble themselves in repentence and to ask for God's grace and favor.
So often we say, "God, bless America," but it's time for America to bless God. One way to do so is to call out to Him--for ourselves, for our leaders, and for the overall well-being of our nation.
Congresswoman Bachmann is a member of the Congressional Prayer Caucus, which she discusses in the second video.
