(Worthy News) - Lawmakers and religious leaders gathered together Thursday evening for the 67th National Observance of the National Day of Prayer at the US Capitol.
This year's theme is "Pray for America: Unity," and was led by Dr. Ronnie Floyd, president of the National Day of Prayer Task Force.
"We are living through a crucial time in our country's history. Division rages, hate and vitriolic language are loud, " Floyd said in a statement on the group's website. "We're more focused on making enemies than friends. If we do not find the resolve to come together and confront the issues fracturing our communities and dividing our country, we will not find the peace and healing we desperately need."
