Speaker of the House Paul Ryan claims that it makes sense to pray after mass shootings because prayers 'works' according to the Hill.

Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) in an interview broadcast Monday dismissed criticism of his tweet saying the Texas shooting victims “need our prayers,” arguing “prayer works.” “It’s disappointing. It’s sad, and this is what you’ll get from the far secular left. People who do not have faith, don’t understand faith, I guess I’d have to say,” Ryan told Fox News’s Laura Ingraham on “The Ingraham Angle” when asked about the criticism. “And it is the right thing to do, is to pray in moments like this because you know what? Prayer works.”
