Who knew prayer could be so offensive to so many? But that's exactly the reaction Pastor Jack Hibbs received from several members of Congress after he gave a prayer on January 30th to open their session. Hibbs is the pastor of mega church Calvary Chapel in Chino Hills, California. House Speaker Mike Johnson invited him to deliver the invocation. In his prayer, Hibbs called for "humility and repentance of national sins in a time of great need." In a letter that was sent to the Speaker of the House, 26 Democrats accused Hibbs of being "an ill-qualified hate preacher" who was pushing a "Christian Nationalist agenda", according to Roll Call. On this episode of Lighthouse Faith podcast, recorded from the National Religious Broadcasters Convention in Nashville, TN, Pastor Hibbs answers the Democrats' accusations, talks about what he prayed for, and why he believes it rankled the nerves of those on the left. He also discusses his new book, "Daze of Deception: How to Discern Truth from Culture's Lies." Learn more about your ad choices. Visit
