McCain's pastor to pray at RNC finale

John McCain's pastor Dan Yeary is giving the invocation tomorrow night before McCain's acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention.

"John and I are friends, he has called on me to minister to the family in times of challenge and difficulty," Yeary told Reuters in March. "John and I are having continual dialogue about his spiritual pursuits."

Eva Rodriguez, the National Hispanic Evangelical Women's president is scheduled to give the benediction tonight, and Robert Certain, an Episcopal priest who was a former prisoner of war in Vietnam gave the invocation last night.
