Senator Jim Talent says he prayed to trust Jesus as his Savior in response to an invitation he heard on the radio. The Missouri Republican gave his Christian testimony at a National Day of Prayer event this month on Capitol Hill. Talent said he was not raised in any faith, but began reading the Bible in college. After a couple of years, he said, he knew "a lot about God." But Talent said he did not "know God" until he was driving one day in 1984 and heard evangelist Luis Palau on a Focus on the Family broadcast. Talent said he pulled over, prayed the sinner's prayer with Palau, and -- in his words -- "passed over from death to life."
