God heard and answered all of the prayers for Congressman Steve Scalise! And he gives all the glory to God! Thank God and praise Him—He is at work in our nation. Share a prayer of thanksgiving with Congressman Scalise HERE.
Come and hear, all you who fear God; let me tell you what he has done for me. I cried out to him with my mouth; his praise was on my tongue. (Ps 66:16-17)
“U.S. Rep. Steve Scalise credits ‘the power of prayer’ for being alive after a bullet nearly killed him.
The Majority Whip returned to Congress on Thursday to thunderous applause. He walked in leaning on leg supports but under his own power. As soon as he entered the chamber, the entire House of Representatives erupted with shouts and cheers.
‘It starts with God,’ the Louisiana Republican told his peers. ‘He really did deliver for me and my family.’
He told them that since the shooting he has experienced a spiritual revival. ‘It just gives you that renewed faith and understanding that the power of prayer is something you cannot underestimate.’. . .
Scalise told the packed House that after he was shot, he was unable to move. ‘I just started to pray,’ he shared. ‘And (prayer) gave me an unbelievable sense of calm. At that point, it was in God’s hands.’
‘I prayed for very specific things. And, I will tell you, pretty much every one of those prayers were answered,’ Scalise said, barely keeping his composure. ‘I’m definitely a living example that miracles really do happen.’”(Excerpted from Life Site News, reporting by Fr.
