Senate Confirms Christian Mike Pompeo as New Secretary of State

The U.S. Senate has voted to confirm former CIA Director Mike Pompeo as the nation’s new Secretary of State.

CBN News reports that the Senate voted to confirm Pompeo 57 to 42. Pompeo will take over for Rex Tillerson who previously held the post of Secretary of State in the Trump administration.

As ChristianHeadlines.com previously reported, Pompeo is a Christian whose faith is central to his life.

“He said he was ‘brought to Jesus Christ’ during his early years as a cadet at the United States Military Academy at West Point by two of his classmates. He later became a member of Eastminster Presbyterian Church in Wichita, Kan., where he served as a deacon from 2007-2009 and once taught Sunday school.”

Throughout the confirmation process, Pompeo’s home church prayed for and supported him.

“This morning, we want to pray for our dear brother Mike Pompeo as he goes through the confirmation process,” the Rev. Warren Snyder, Eastminster Presbyterian’s assistant pastor, prayed several Sundays ago.

“We ask that you would be glorified in his life, that you would be lifted up, that you would strengthen him and his wife (Susan) and his son (Nick) as he goes through this process. Give him strength. Help him to stand.”

It certainly seems that God has answered that prayer!
