Whatever differences may have been on national display this week, politicians were able to come together yesterday for something that has the power to unite:  prayer.

The National Prayer Breakfast was held in Washington, D.C., with several major political figures in attendance.

President Donald Trump used it as an opportunity to discuss his impeachment acquittal as House Speaker Nancy Pelosi sat a few feet away.

“I don’t like people who use their faith as justification for doing what they know is wrong, nor do I like people who say ‘I pray for you’ when you know that is not so,” Trump said.

During the impeachment process, Pelosi said she and other Democrats pray for the president.

Despite Trump calling impeachment a “terrible ordeal by some very dishonest and corrupt people,” he used most of the morning to speak on the importance of prayer.

“As I said on Tuesday in the House Chamber, ‘In America, we don’t punish prayer. We don’t tear down crosses. We don’t ban symbols of faith. We don’t muzzle preachers.’ We don’t muzzle pastors.  ‘In America, we celebrate faith, we cherish religion, we lift our voices in prayer, and we raise our sights to the Glory of God,’” Trump said to applause.

Trump addressed how faith and prayer of American families has helped the nation to do great things.

He referenced how thousands of poor families long ago donated to build New York City’s St. Patrick’s Cathedral, or when astronaut Buzz Aldrin landed on the Moon – he read from the Bible.

“So much of the greatness we have achieved, the mysteries we’ve unlocked, and the wonders we’ve built, the challenges we’ve met, and the incredible heights that we’ve reached has come from the faith of our families and the prayers of our people,” he said.

Trump also spoke about his work to defend the sanctity of life and religious liberty, including the constitutional right to pray in public schools.

He also spoke about the power of American redemption, and how more employers are giving prisoners a second chance through jobs.

“Today we proudly proclaim that faith is alive and well and thriving in America,” Trump stated. “And we’re going to keep it that way. Nobody will have it changed. It won’t happen. As long as I’m here, it will never, ever happen.”
