Nathan Johnson, the second counselor in the Kirtland Ohio Stake Presidency, gave the invocation for the Republican National Convention on Wednesday. 

In his prayer, Johnson gave thanks for the men and women who serve and protect America's freedoms and asked for a blessing on American leaders that "they may have wisdom and humility as they serve." 

He also prayed for those who would seek to do Americans harm to have their hearts softened. 

"And Father, we pray for healing. Healing for our society. Healing for the family. Even that healing that comes through the Atonement of Jesus Christ. We pray that He who is the great physician may mend our division and contention and bring us peace in our world, in our communities, and in our homes," Johnson prayed.

Johnson is a Cleveland native. His RNC schedule identifier for his invocation was "The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints." Listen to the entire prayer in the video above.
