Thousands of people packed the National Mall in downtown Washington on Saturday to pray for the nation.

The march, which stretched from the Lincoln Memorial to the U.S. Capitol, was held just hours before President Donald Trump announced he was nominating Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court.

Vice President Mike Pence, speaking from the steps of the memorial, said he came to extend Trump’s “greetings and gratitude” and asked them to pray for the new Supreme Court nominee.
