El Salvador Christians Pray Over Pivotal Election

Ad Feedback

El Salvador's Christian community is helping the country through a tense presidential election season.

There are heated debates over one leading candidate's past as a member of a rebel army.

Mauricio Funes represents the Farabundo Marti National Liberation Front or FMLN, a leftist rebel group that drew the U.S. into a bloody Central America conflict in the 1980s.

If elected, Funes would be El Salvador's first leftist president.

Recently more than 12,000 Christians marched through the streets of the capital, San Salvador.

They came for a unified worship and prayer meeting at the city's national stadium.

Current President Antonio Saca addressed the crowd.

Believers prayed for God's guidance for the March 15 elections.
