Indiana Governor and Republican vice presidential candidate Mike Pence stopped for a campaign rally in Newton, Iowa Tuesday, Oct. 11, and during his remarks, he informed Iowans, “It’d be a good time to pray for this country, in the next four weeks.”
“I would encourage you, if you are inclined to do as the Pence family does from time to time, to bow the head and bend the knee,” said Indiana Governor and Republican vice presidential candidate Mike Pence, “it’d be a good time to pray for this country, in the next four weeks.”
The campaign rally was held at the Newton campus of Des Moines Area Community College in Iowa, a key swing state in the 2016 presidential election.
With the Nov. 8 election a mere 28 days away, the Indiana Governor encouraged Iowans to have faith and to pray specifically for America. “Pray that America will once again stand tall, stand strong,” said Governor Pence.
“‘The last best hope of earth,’ that’s what Abraham Lincoln called it. It’s still true.”
America is a “beacon of hope and freedom,” Governor Pence continued.
“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.”
