Mitt Romney’s Quiet Prayer Amidst The Sound Of Thunder
Red Rocks Colorado is a fabulous venue and famous for great concerts of every musical genre. As a site for a political rally it was equal in every way to any event held there. And then this small anecdote, witnessed but by a few during a time of frenetic energy and acclaim... a reflective moment of humility and acknowledgement, something I want in my President.
It was described as something very peaceful and powerful that came over that backstage area for a moment. And the governor, he lowers his head and his eyes shut tight and you could see him take a slow deep breath and then he lets it out and says quietly, but just loud enough for some to hear, “Lord, if this is your will, please help to make me worthy. Please give me the strength Lord.” And then his eyes open up, and he’s back to smiling and laughing and shaking hands and being the candidate once again.
