SACRAMENTO, Calif., Nov. 7, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The following is a statement from the Rev. Samuel Rodriguez:

"First, permit me to congratulate the President on his re-election. I pray that our President will be used by God to bring our nation together. I pray that he will recognize the image of God in every human being (in and out of the womb), strengthen families, defend religious liberty both domestically and abroad, alleviate poverty, protect our Judeo-Christian value system, and advance the cause of immigration reform. 

Second, it's important to understand that our nation stands divided. The outcome of the 2012 Presidential election reinforces the fact that what America needs the most is not a political movement driven by expediency and agendas of man but a prophetic movement driven by the impetus of the cross. 

To that respect, I am convinced more than ever that the only agenda that can save America and unite our nation is not the agenda of the donkey or the elephant but the agenda of the Lamb. 

The agenda of the Lamb is one of righteousness and justice. We need a multi-ethnic kingdom culture cross driven movement that will reconcile Billy Graham's message with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.'s march. In other words, we need a movement committed to protecting life and alleviating poverty, strengthening marriages and doing justice in the name of Jesus. It can no longer be either or, it must be both and. 

In order to protect our Judeo Christian value system, defend the image of God in every human being (in and out of the womb), secure religious freedom, reform the culture, transform our political discourse and usher in a new awakening, we must reconcile truth with love, conviction with compassion, sanctification with service and holiness with humility. 

It's time to reconcile Billy Graham's message of righteousness with Dr. King's march for justice. It's time to focus, not on the left or the right but on the power of He who is on high for the purpose of lifting up the low. Behold the Lamb."
