Pastors and Christian leaders issued a call to prayer after Trump supporters and others stormed the U.S. Capitol building, stalling the certification of Joe Biden as the next president of the United States.

Photos of the violence showed protesters vandalizing House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s office, smashing windows, looting art and briefly taking control of the Senate chamber. Amid the chaos, one woman was shot and killed by police after breaching the Capitol and attempting to enter the House chamber. Three others died as a result of “medical emergencies,” according to the Metropolitan Police Department.

The Senate and House both reconvened late Wednesday to resume counting the Electoral College votes. Early Thursday morning, President Donald Trump said there “will be an orderly transition on January 20th” after Congress concluded the electoral vote count certifying President-elect Biden’s victory.
