Pastor Ronnie Floyd of Cross Church in Fayetteville opened the U.S. House of Representatives with prayer this morning.

Pastor Floyd was recently elected President of the Southern Baptist Convention. The act of opening public meetings with prayer is a longstanding American tradition that, as the U.S. Supreme Court has noted, predates the U.S. Constitution. We are pleased to see Pastor Floyd participating in that tradition, asking for divine wisdom for our elected officials.

Watch his prayer below.
