(BLOGS.CBN) — In a one-on-one interview with “The Brody File,” Newt Gingrich says God is in control of events and explains that he prays before major speeches and debates.

“I think I had an epiphany in that sense of Christ coming into my heart, in my 20s, and I felt born again. I think it’s a very deep part of me, and something that leads me, for example, to pray before every major speech and before every debate.”

As for God being in control of events he tells me, “It’s always God’s will. That’s a point that my wife reminds me of regularly.”
