Rachael Lampa sings at Republican National Convention

Christian singer Rachael Lampa sang "When I Fall" and "Blessed" at the Republican National Convention tonight, bringing back memories to when the Christian band Third Day sang at the 2004 Republican National Convention.

Miles McPherson, pastor of The Rock Church in San Diego and former professional football player gave a prayer referencing Hurricane Gustav.

"It is true, there are times when no one can help you, not the police, not the National Guard, not even your mama. But y'know, we are never completely 'on our own.' Thank God that no matter how bad things get, He is always with us. Amen?"

He ended: "Finally, thank You God for Always being there for us. Thank You for making America the greatest country in the world. We pray these things to the Lord our God. Amen."
