Christian worshiper Richard Patten, a Washington, D.C., businessman, regularly prays outside the White House gates.

“I have been praying here at the White House for the last 16 years. The Holy Spirit put a calling on me …” Patten says.

“They took me off to jail for the most uncomfortable night I’ve ever had in my life,” Patten said.
