Rep. Steve Scalise returned to the House of Representatives Thursday for the first time since he was shot by a radical leftist.

After arriving to thunderous, sustained applause, Scalise gave a speech on the floor, thanking God and acknowledging the power of answered prayer in his recovery.

“The power of prayer is something that you just cannot underestimate,” Scalise said. “I am definitely a living example that miracles really do happen.”

Watch his full speech:

Thanking the Capitol Hill police, his doctors at MedStar, and his well-wishers in Congress and from around the world, Scalise said his faith in God was strengthened by the experience and the outpouring of love he felt.

“While some people might focus on a tragic event and an evil act, to me, all I remember are the thousands of acts of kindness and love that came out of this, ” he said.
