To what our constitution calls, ‘free exercise of religion’ including, of course, prayer,” he says in the ad. “Through prayer, faith can be restored.

We are not only a beacon to the world but we should be servants to each other,” he continues as epic orchestral strings play. between heartwarming shots of a family get together and people swimming.

“We will build a stronger country by building stronger families. Families are the building blocks of society,” he adds. “By turning to faith, we will be the kind of nation, the kind of people, God intends us to be,” he concludes as footage of the sea plays.
