On Tuesday evening, November 17, 2015, Grace United Methodist Church in Harrisburg, PA hosted a Pray USA worship rally. Over 200 people attended, including 20 Pennsylvania Senators and Representatives. Several of the lawmakers spoke about the need to draw upon the beliefs and values of our Christian faith in the political process and halls of government. The event concluded with the assembly signing the Pray for America Proclamation, which was placed on one of the desks used by the Pennsylvania House of Representatives when the House moved to Grace Church after the Capitol was destroyed by fire in 1897.
