U.S. Senate Chaplain Barry Black knows what it is like to pray about political differences in our nation's capital.

As the 62nd chaplain of the Senate, Black is the spiritual leader for some of the most powerful people in the country. He pastors 100 senators and he ministers to hundreds more in Washington, D.C.

As protests and riots continue following the deaths of George Floyd and Rayshard Brooks, Chaplain Black is also praying about the need for healing and change in America.

"We have had challenges with race almost from the start because when we said all people are created equal, we were not talking about, certainly not people of African heritage," Black told CBN News. "And so we have had to work toward a more perfect union."

During a recent opening prayer in the Senate, Black referenced recent officer-involved shootings and the need to sympathize with those affected.
