The Name of Jesus Strikes Fear and Guilt in the Pennsylvania Legislature because of Their Sin
HARRISBURG, Pa. — A lawmaker in Pennsylvania who is also a pastor’s wife is being criticized for repeatedly praying in the name of Jesus prior to the swearing-in of an Islamic legislator, while a Quran reading presented the following day by a Muslim lawmaker received applause in the legislative chambers. Rep. Stephanie Borowicz, R-Clinton County, provided the day’s invocation on Monday, declaring the name of Jesus and Scripture numerous times.
“Jesus, I thank you for this privilege, Lord, of letting me pray,” she began. “That I, Jesus, am your ambassador here today, standing here representing You, the King of kings, the Lord of lords, the great I Am, the One who is coming back again, the One who came, died and rose again on the third day.”
“God, forgive us. Jesus, we’ve lost sight of You,” she then lamented. “We’ve forgotten You, God, and our country, and we’re asking You to forgive us, Jesus. Your promise in Your word says that if My people, who are called by My name, will humble themselves and pray and seek [My] face, and turn from their wicked ways, that You will heal our land.”
“We ask that we not be overcome by evil, but that we overcome evil with good in this land once again,” she continued, referring to Romans 12:21. “I claim all these things in the powerful, mighty name of Jesus—the One who, at the name of Jesus, every knee will bow and every tongue will confess, Jesus, that You are Lord. In Jesus name, amen.”

The Good News
Salvation is a FREE GIFT from God. You don't have to do anything but believe by faith that God sent His only Son Jesus Christ to die for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead 3 days later.
THE GOOD NEWS
Salvation is a FREE GIFT from God. SALVATION IS BY FAITH ALONE & FAITH IS BELIEVING WHAT GOD SAYS.
- God declares all mankind sinners and we all fall short of Glory of God. Romans 3:23
- The payment for our sin is death. Romans 6:23
- But God...because he loved you so much sent His own Son, Jesus Christ, to die in your place, for your sins, was buried, and rose from the dead three days later. 1 Cor 15:1-4; 2cor 5:21
All God asks is that you believe by faith alone in 1, 2, & 3. That you're a sinner, separated from God but God sent his Son to die for your sins, was buried & rose again 3 days later.
'that if you confess with your mouth the Lord Jesus and believe in your heart that God has raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. '
