Prayer

Governor Rick Scott’s tightly scripted inaugural ceremony began with a heavy dose of scripture on Tuesday.

Scott was serenaded by church choirs and prayed for by clergy from across the state at an early morning prayer breakfast at Florida A&M University.

Pam Olsen, pastor of the International House of Prayer of Tallahassee, urged the public to ask that Scott receive divine guidance.

Olsen has never been shy about her beliefs. She and her supporters erected a nativity scene this year at the Florida Capitol.
