Vice President Mike Pence gave the keynote speech Saturday at the Faith & Freedom Caucus' "Road to Majority" Conference in Washington, D.C.
Make no mistake about it, the hard work—maybe the most important work—is in front of us, not behind us," he told those in attendance. "From this day forward, President Trump needs every ounce of your energy, your enthusiasm, your conviction, your time, your talent and your treasure.
We also need maybe one other thing in these divided times—in these times of widening challenges at home and abroad, seemingly unknowable threats, and also a time of uncharacteristic division in America. I know you're the right people for me to encourage to do one more thing. And that is, pray for America.
On this one I'm not so much talking about praying for a cause or praying about an issue. I'm always very moved by what President Abraham Lincoln said during his time. He was asked whether he believed God was on the side of the Union Army. President Lincoln responded memorably. He said, "Rather than considering whether or not God is on our side, I think it's better for us to consider whether we're on God's side."
So, why don't we just pray for America? For all the people in America, and the future of this great country. And when you pray, pray with confidence, because I truly do believe, in those ancient words, spoken millennia ago, and enshrined in the heart of every American. Words that have seen the people of this country through trials much greater than it faces today.
And if His people, who are called by His name, will humble themselves and pray, He'll do like He's always done in the long and storied history of this land. He'll hear from heaven, and He'll heal this land. This one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.
