Unlike most men in Washington, Mike Pence wasn’t raised in a thriving political household. Born to devout Catholic churchgoers, Pence always clung to his faith and had even considered becoming a priest. In college, in pursuit of a degree in History and Law, his faith wavered and the handsome young man decided to give up on religion – but that didn’t stop God’s powerful plan for his life!
After meeting a non-denominational Christian fellow group at college, it wasn’t long before Pence found himself at a Christian music festival where he was convicted in all Jesus had done for him and rededicated his life to Christ. “My heart broke with gratitude and I gave my life to Jesus Christ,” Pence shared.
Politics may be new arena for Donald Trump, but Pence — a former six-term congressman — is well aware of the liberal backlash that comes when you take a stand for unborn lives, Israel, and the Second Amendment.
The liberal media’s response to Pence and the insults to his family has been horrific. But despite it all, the former lawyer remains steadfast, unshakable, and firm in his stances and reminds Americans to respond to hatred with love and to use the most powerful weapon in their possession: prayer.
“So, I encourage you. Remember, what’s been true for thousands of years is still true today. That if His people who are called by His name will humble themselves and pray, He will hear from heaven, and He – as He’s always done before – He will heal our land. One nation, under God, indivisible with liberty and justice for all.” – Mike Pence
“If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” 2 Chronicles 7:14
Praise God for our new Vice President! May God Bless America and our new leaders!
