UPDATE-De facto Honduran leader asks God to enlighten critics
TEGUCIGALPA - Shortly after we wrote about the “Day of Prayer” in Honduras today, the de facto president, Roberto Micheletti, made a live appearance on state television to lead the people in prayer.
He thanked Christians, both Catholic and Evangelical, for their support.
“I ask for forgiveness from those who for one reason or another do not agree with us, and I ask God to show them the light so they realize it is more important to live in peace,” Micheletti said.
“I am here not because men put me here, I am here because God put me here,” he said.
“I want the best for my country,” Micheletti said. “I believe that up to this moment, I have no reason to be humbled before any man, but before God permanently, because I have acted correctly in my life.”
