Stephanie Borowicz Prayer
In March 2019 Borowicz delivered a controversial prayer in the House of Representatives a short time before Rep. Movita Johnson-Harrell, the chamber’s first Muslim woman was sworn into office. In just under to minutes Borowicz had mentioned Jesus 13 times, at one point describing him as “our only hope” and professing that as a nation, “we’ve lost sight of you.” She also referenced Israel, President Donald Trump, and Gov. Tom Wolf, among others.
Near the end, Borowicz said: “Every tongue will confess, Jesus, that you are Lord.” Someone yelled, “Objection!” and she concluded the prayer and left the podium.
According to The Philadelphia Inquirer, Johnson-Harrell said that that wasn’t a prayer. She revealed that she initially wasn’t fazed until Borowicz began referencing Trump and Israel.
“At that point, I’m saying, ‘This ain’t a prayer, this is a political statement masked as a prayer.’ It felt intentional, and it felt planned.” She added that the prayer was “Islamophobic, xenophobic, and absolutely degrading”.

In March 2020 Stephanie filed a resolution designating March 30 as “A State Day of Humiliation, Fasting and Prayer”. She states in her resolution that during this time of uncertainty and anxiety, Pennsylvanians may be comforted by turning to a day of “humiliation, fasting and prayer.”
She adds that it is the “duty of all nations” to “own their dependence upon the overruling power of God to confess their sins and transgressions in humble sorrow.” The resolution also states, “With assured hope that genuine repentance will lead to mercy and pardon, and to recognize the sublime truth, announced in the Holy Scriptures and proven by all history: that those nations only are blessed whose God is the Lord.”
