Christian leaders, lawmakers and distinguished guests packed into the U.S. Capitol for the 68th National Day of Prayer observance Thursday night, calling on Americans of all political stripes to “love one another” or run the risk letting a divided kingdom fall.

In the midst of a split Congress and a politically divided America, believers gathered at the Statuary Hall for a night of worship and intercessory prayer, fervently asking God to use His divine power to heal the ideological divisions plaguing the nation.

“We are deeply honored, every one of us, to live in the greatest country in the history of the world but we also are keenly aware that we are a country experiencing problems and difficulties: things like racism, things like hatred, things like violent crime and a host of other things,” Georgia Republican Congressman Jody Hice said during the event.

Whether you agree with religion or not, there has been a lot of hostility towards religion recently to the point where a gun man walks into a synagogue and starts shooting at people. In America this shouldn’t be happening. We have Constitutional protections for religious freedoms, so please respect those freedoms. I noticed some posters feel proud when church numbers go down or they feel great when the shooters a Christian. Celebrating death of any religious person is sickening. If we are a nation of equal rights , then respect those rights rather then creating animosity towards those rights. It triggers individuals with mental problems to take a gun and act on their animosity. It all starts with each individual, act civil
