On Thursday, Majority Whip Steve Scalise returned to the House of Representatives floor after being critically wounded during the mass shooting that occurred at a congressional baseball practice in June of this year. What he said saved him has Conservatives cheering and Liberals fuming.

On June 14, Scalise was shot in the hip and collapsed as a lone gunman, James T. Hodgkinson, terrorized the baseball practice and injured four others. After his return to the House floor, Scalise was greeted with loud applause and a standing ovation. Then he began to speak, and the liberals on the floor definitely had to force their applause after he credited God for saving him.

“It starts with God,” Scalise said adding that when he was laying on the field unsure if it was the end, he “just started praying.”

“When I was laying on the ground one of the things I prayed for was that David and Crystal would be successful in carrying out their duties,” The New York Times reported Scalise said. “When I was laying there not long after the first shots were fired, I could hear a different-caliber weapon. And that told me that they had immediately engaged the shooter.”

David Bailey and Crystal Griner were the officers credited with subduing Hodgkinson.

“Pretty much every one of those prayers were answered,” Scalise continued. “He really did deliver for me and my family, and it just gives you that renewed faith and understanding that the power of prayer is just something that you cannot underestimate.”

Triumphantly, Scalise added, “I’m definitely a living example that miracles really do happen.”

According to Fox News, Scalise was shot in his left hip and the bullet passed through to his right hip. “The round did substantial damage to bones, internal organs and blood vessels, according to Dr. Jack Sava, the director of trauma at MedStar Washington Hospital where Scalise had been treated after the shooting,” the outlet continued.

However, as Scalise reminded us… there is no problem that is too big for God to solve.

While we are currently living in a climate that has continued to attack those with Christian beliefs and moral values, the proof is in the pudding. Scalise is evidence that prayer works and that God is here working miracles every day.
