The award is given to one member of the U.S. House of Representatives and one U.S. senator for demonstrating an exemplary commitment to Bible reading.

“It’s a true honor to receive this award from the National Bible Association,” said California congresswoman Hahn as reported by Eurweb.com.“Faith has always been a strong part of my life and my journey. The congressional prayer breakfast allows members of Congress to come together in fellowship and share our journey of faith. Every week, we set aside political differences and unite for and with one another around prayer. I have found unlikely friends in this breakfast and have made partnerships that have helped me better serve my constituents and my God."
