The Beltway is full of believers, but you wouldn’t know it by watching the news outlets, Senate Chaplain Barry Black told the 2017 National Prayer Breakfast.

“There are saints in Caesar’s household,” Black said in his address, quoting Philippians 4:22. The number of weekly Bible studies attended by Senators, chiefs of staff and regular staffers along with Capitol Hill police, janitors and wait staff leaves him “encouraged by the robust spirituality of so many who work on Capitol Hill.” He added that all those gatherings begin and end with prayer.

“To see Republican, Democrat, Independent, praying together, I find myself thinking, ‘Where are the C-Span cameras when you need them?”

The Retired Navy Rear Admiral has served as the Senate Chaplain for 14 years. The keynote speaker of the 2017 National Prayer Breakfast said he got an “adrenaline rush” as he gathered with thousands of people from all 50 states and 140 countries seeking divine blessing on the United States.

“I feel the palpable presence of God in this place,” he said. (Click to Article)
