Dr. Ming Wang gave the invocation at the annual GOP Picnic in Nashville today. Here is an excerpt from the text of the prayer:
Dear God, thank you for bringing us together today in this wonderful city that we call home. Please help guide the Republican Party during these challenging times. Help us lead and unite all of the citizens of our country.
God, America is at a cross road and we need your wisdom to make a choice. If we don’t stand up and fight, to preserve our liberty and freedom, our country will slide much farther towards the dangerous dead-end of socialism. I’m a witness to what happened to countries like China 50 years ago when there was a Cultural Holocaust which destroyed the lives of 20 million people – these events reminded us that we are all so blessed here in America. We have freedom. We need your vision and love dear lord to remind us of the foundation and ideals that our great nation was founded upon. America stands for freedom based on your grace. It also stands for individual responsibility, a strong family and Christian values based on your blessed gifts.
We ask you, God, to bless our nation further today with clear vision so that all Americans stay safe, prosper, and our people make the right decision for who will lead our country. God Bless America, and in Jesus name we pray. Amen.
“It was a real honor to be part of this annual GOP event, and an even greater honor to pray over the event and the meal,” Dr. Wang commented.
