“Let us pray. . . have mercy upon us, O God.”
United States Chaplain of the Senate, Barry Black, was raised by a mother who insisted he memorize Bible verses—in fact it was the only way he could earn his allowance—a nickel a verse!
He says, “She eventually put me on a flat rate because it was breaking the family budget!”
When asked how much of the Bible he’s memorized:
“Quite a bit. Those nickels—you know, obviously! And I love the Bible.
There are few political figures Barry Black doesn’t have access to. They attend his weekly Bible study, the weekly prayer breakfast at the Senate, or just drop by his office.
Whenever, wherever—Barry Black is always ready with a memorized verse!
