WASHINGTON – U.S. Senators Tim Scott (R-S.C.) and Chris Coons (D-Del.) and U.S. Representatives John Moolenaar (R-Mich.) and Tom Suozzi (D-N.Y.) co-chaired the 69th National Prayer Breakfast.
“It’s an honor to co-chair this year’s National Prayer Breakfast with my friend, Senator Chris Coons, and Congressmen Suozzi and Moolenaar,” said Senator Scott. “While this year’s event may look a little different, we are still united in our shared belief that we are a stronger and more resilient nation because of our faith in God. And as scripture tells us, where two or three are gathered, the Lord is near. My prayer is that even in the midst of chaos and uncertainty, we can trust in the promise that better days are ahead.”
“For the last 69 years, the National Prayer Breakfast has brought together religious, political, and cultural leaders from all over the world in a celebration of spirituality and prayer,” said Senator Coons. “After a very divisive time in our nation’s history, it’s my hope that this year’s breakfast offers Americans of all faiths and backgrounds the strength and courage to unite as a nation and tackle the challenges we face together. I’m honored to co-chair this event with Senator Scott and Congressmen Suozzi and Moolenaar.”
“My hope is that this morning’s National Prayer Breakfast was a time of encouragement and friendship as we continued an annual tradition that began in 1952,” said Congressman Moolenaar. “We are all created in the image of God and with mutual respect for one another we can work together to improve the lives of those we serve.”
“During this time of division in our nation, the Prayer Breakfast reminds us to both love our neighbors and even the more challenging love our enemies,” said Representative Suozzi. “We need to come together and promote programs and policies that will advance the common good.”
