Republican presidential candidate Michele Bachmann eschewed the bully pulpit for a time, turning instead to an evangelical Christian church pulpit in Iowa to declare that, if people “turn away from our wicked ways,” God will “heal our land. And we will have a new day.”

Michele Bachmann, Iowa, church, Waukee, RepublicanThe Minnesota congresswoman didn’t mention politics during the 21-minute talk at Point of Grace Church in Waukee Sunday, discussing instead her own faith and personal history, according to a report in The Des Moines Register.

She noted the replica of the "Prayer at Valley Forge" painting in the church entry, the same image of a kneeling, battle-ready Gen. George Washington that Bachmann has in her office in Washington, D.C.

"We, too, are at a crucial time today. And I think it is for us to remember, that if we do as Chronicles tells us, if we humble ourselves, and pray and confess our sins, and turn away from our wicked ways, and ask an almighty God to come and protect us and fight the battle for us, we know from his word, his promise is sure. He will come. He will heal our land. And we will have a new day."

God is not partial, Bachmann told the 200 worshipers in the church. "What he will do for one, he will do for all. And it is the same with nations as well. And as we seek him, he's there for us. I have seen it. I have lived that in my own life since I came to him, out of his grace, in his mercy, back on November 1st of 1972."

The date is refers to Bachmann’s dedicating herself to Jesus Chris at age 16.

Bachmann related personal stories about her own spiritual awakening and how a miscarriage became part of the reason she has devoted much of her energy to caring for foster children.
