In a stunning and sickening display of mass lawlessness, protestors have stormed the United States Capitol, halting an already contentious certification process of the results of the 2020 presidential election.
Striking images include rogue individuals on the House and Senate floors, Secret Service and police with guns drawn and tear gas unleashed into the air. There is a report that one woman has been shot.
The National Guard has been mobilized, and law enforcement officials are beginning to clear the building.
Peaceful protest is one thing – but violence has no place in American politics. It is despicable.
Please join me in praying for peace. Please join me in praying that law and order will be restored in Washington, D.C.
