Brownback shares faith at prayer event

Gov. Sam Brownback spoke for about 10 minutes at the ReignDown USA prayer and worship event held Saturday in Topeka. In addition to talking about the phrase “In God We Trust” as it pertains to the country, Brownback shared how being diagnosed with cancer in 1995 led him to a stronger commitment to his faith, the Topeka Capital-Journal reported. “I finally reached up and said, ‘God, this life’s yours.’ It started a great adventure,” he said. Brownback prayed “for forgiveness of his sins, while also asking forgiveness of man’s sins, like broken treaties with Native Americans and slavery, or generalizations, such as greed and lust,” the Capital-Journal reported.
