WASHINGTON, May 4, 2017—Dr. Ronnie Floyd, senior pastor of Cross Church, and the immediate past president of the Southern Baptist Convention, issues the following statement regarding the National Day of Prayer:
“I’m honored to join President Trump, Vice President Pence and America’s faith leaders for a day of prayer for our nation. Days like today remind me that as long as America humbles herself before God, pleading out of sincere hearts to truly know and serve Him, we will remain a ‘nation under God.’ On this solemn occasion, I pray America will experience a return to God’s truth that will lead to a new revival and spiritual awakening that will impact our generation. I’m thankful for all this this administration has done over it’s first 100 days to advance religious liberty, protect the unborn, and to strengthen the role of faith in America. In the first 100 days of a President, evangelicals have never had a stronger relationship with the White House.”
