How This Bible Verse Applies to America's Leaders and the Nation


WASHINGTON -- There have always been a lot of similarities between Vice President-elect Mike Pence and President Ronald Reagan, from their similar demeanors to true conservative values. And now, another striking similarity that has to do with the Bible – both men share a favorite verse.

“If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.” – 2 Chronicles 7:14
