Donald Trump's former rival and 2016 presidential candidate Ted Cruz recently held a prayer meeting with conservative pastors and members of Congress on Capitol Hill.
The meeting was held to pray against Satan's power on Capitol Hill and was organized by Wallbuilders and the Jefferson Gathering, reported by Right Wing Watch.
Wallbuilders is a conservative organization run by evangelical author and activist David Barton, and the Jefferson Gathering is a prayer organization developed by Skyline Church, where Jim Garlow is the lead pastor.
"Sen. Ted Cruz was eloquent as usual. He came through a bruising election—and continues to be a profound & significant voice in the Senate. Thank God for him!" Garlow wrote on Facebook.
"There are at least 5 or 6 pastors ... in Congress. Congressman Jody Hic—GA—is one of those & was my friend before he went to the U.S. House of Representatives. These are the type of high-quality people who are representing you," he said in another post.
"The problem has been in the White House & 5 of the Justices of the SCOTUS. The problem is NOT the Congress," he added.
Pastor Dave Walker of the Tennessee Pastors Network and Dave Kistler of the North Carolina Pastors Network participated in the event as well.
"If God rules in the halls of legislation, it's the pulpit's benefit of being there, being on site and standing up and speaking the law of God to our elected leaders and praying for them," Walker explained. "The absence of the pulpits is the reason why Satan has ruled in the halls of legislation."
The group prayed in the Kennedy Caucus Room in the Capitol and in the U.S. Senate chamber, also led by Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas.
"We got on our knees ... and it sounded almost like a labor room as people were crying out to God for the revival that Chaplain Black believes is coming and that we believe is coming," Kistler said.
"To do that in the Senate chamber was an absolutely astounding opportunity," he added. "And again it puts an exclamation point on the Senate chaplain's assessment that revival is on the way and may indeed begin in the halls of Congress."
