SALT LAKE CITY -- People of many faiths who support a health care reform bill came together in Salt Lake City Tuesday to pray.

"Strengthen us to use our hearts, hands and voices to raise our vision for a health care future that includes everyone and works well for all of us," they prayed.

The group gathered outside Rep. Jim Matheson's office and prayed for elected officials to have the courage to pass a bill this year.

Organizers say the debate around health care reform has become uncivil and has ignored the fundamental injustice of the present health care system.
