Vice President Mike Pence spoke at a Florida megachurch on Sunday, explaining that whenever people pray for President Donald Trump, he and the administration “feel it.”
During a worship service held at the Coral Springs-based Church by the Glades, which has six campuses and averages 9,300 weekly worshippers, Vice President Pence was interviewed on the main stage by Senior Pastor David Hughes.
When Pastor Hughes asked Pence if he could pray for him, the vice president replied that “the sweetest words that I or the president ever hear are across a rope line or as we’re walking through a public place, someone will reach out and very earnestly say ‘I’m praying for you.'”
“And I just want you to know that we all feel it,” continued Pence, who then drew a parallel to the time in the Old Testament Book of Exodus, chapter 17, when Moses had to keep his arms raised up to guarantee victory against the Amalekites.
“I want you to know that, on behalf of the president and the first family, on behalf of our little family, we feel your prayers and we encourage you to continue to carry all those who serve in every political party, all the men and women who serve in uniform, in your prayers.”
