A peculiar place, the RNC official prayer room is located at the very top of the convention center. The room is well marked but comically located between concession stands. Approximately the size of a cubicle, the room is heavily lit and is punctuated by a stainless steel that lines the walls, sharply reflecting the florescent lighting. The glare is accented by seven metal chairs facing a plastic table with a single open Bible on top. The Bible, is open to Proverbs 3 and the first verse visible is:
Trust in the Lord with all your heart
and lean not on your own understanding;
6 in all your ways submit to him,
and he will make your paths straight.
An RNC official told TheBlaze that the room is meant for the courtesy of the convention attendees.
“Some delegates have strong religious beliefs and need a quiet place to pray and reflect,” the official said. Will the far off room get much use? The official does not know. Shrugging his shoulders he says, “It is a courtesy you probably wont get at the DNC.”
With the Hurricane just missing Tampa it seems like some convention prayers may have already been answered. Now more are needed for New Orleans.
