CHARLOTTE, N.C. A Sunday of religious activity tied to the Democratic National Convention opened and closed with a prayer, as believers of varying spiritual and political backgrounds were urged to reconnect with God to cure the country’s ills.

In the day’s largest event, some 5,000 conservative Christians gathered north of uptown in what was billed as a nonpartisan prayer for Charlotte and the country.

Hundreds who attended Charlotte714 at Verizon Wireless Amphitheater streamed from their seats to sign a 130-foot “Declaration of National Spiritual Emergency.”

Nothing wrong with praying it’s good for the soul even if you are a Democrat!

If The LORD answers their prayers, they will be very taken back by what He says to them.

I don't see how "conservative" Christians could support the party of abortion and same sex "marriage".
