Congressman: Prayer Matters

Press Release

By:  Tim Scott
Date: May 3, 2012
Location: Summerville, SC

Thursday morning -- dawn of the National Day of Prayer -- Congressman Tim Scott recounted his Monday morning, running late for an interview with Fox News.
Addressing nearly 150 people gathered at Bethany United Methodist for the YMCA of Summerville's fifth annual prayer breakfast, Scott said his priorities came to order when he screeched to a halt on Charleston's Ravenel Bridge with the harrowing scene of an 18-wheeler crushing a police unit, putting an officer's life in jeopardy, in front of him.

For nearly a minute, he said, he was frustrated and harried. But then he heard a voice telling him to pray.
