2. VIDEO: During committee hearing, Senator Graham has unforgettable and powerful comments about the process and his colleagues

"Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., let loose on his Democratic colleagues Thursday over what he called the "sham" hearing to probe sexual assault allegations against Brett Kavanaugh, in a display that earned him praise from the White House and scorn from the left. Graham blasted Democrats toward the end of the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing with the Supreme Court nominee and accuser Christine Blasey Ford. She alleges Kavanaugh forced himself on her when both were high school students in the 1980s. But Graham alleged the Democrats' handling was all about politics."

LORD, we pray with great urgency over the affairs of our country. You instructed us to pray for our elected officials, and we raise our hands before you in this effort. Our country is experiencing a moment of great social turmoil. LORD, please be with your people during this time. Be with the Senators on the judiciary committee. Grant them wisdom and truth. Be with all our Senate and Congressional Representatives. Be with Kavanaugh, Ford, and their families, during this trying time. Be with President Trump and Vice President Pence.

Grant them all humility, wisdom, and guidance.
