Harris' Prayer Call Stirs Concerns

TBO reported U.S. Rep. Katherine Harris, who has made past comments that raised questions about her religious sensitivity, prayed in a telephone prayer service recently that God would "bring the hearts and minds of our Jewish brothers and sisters into alignment." A Harris spokeswoman said Friday that the Longboat Key Republican, who has advocated electing Christian officeholders, was talking about converting Jews to vote Republican, not to Christianity.

I suspect that is correct, considering that she is probably focusing on the upcoming election, but I don't see anything wrong if she was praying to bring them to Christ. At least she was not suggesting using force to convert them to Islam.
In a conference call prayer service sponsored by a religious conservative group on Oct. 3, Harris expressed the belief that Florida will lead the nation in a spiritual reawakening.
I hope that is true, not just in this country, but especially in Secular Europe.
She said that will include changes in government, including prayer in schools and changes in tax regulations on churches and charities. "We just decree and declare there will be a shift for this nation, that there will be an enormous revival, even a revolution as we speak," she prayed. "Once again, we'll rejoice, rejoice with your Son and bring this nation into alignment with your government with your kingdom principles and authority."
