Two Tennessee lawmakers have held a prayer rally timed to coincide with a protest in the nation’s Capitol in support of President Donald Trump.

Although speakers repeated the debunked claims that Joe Biden did not win the election, they focused Wednesday on praying for the country and asked supporters to put their trust in God. State Rep. Bruce Griffey told about 150 people gathered outside the state Capitol in Nashville that he hoped Vice President Mike Pence would prevent the certification of Biden as the next president. But if he didn't, Griffey said it wouldn't matter because, in his words, “God is in control.”
