Republican vice presidential hopeful Sarah Palin is putting the outcome of the November 4 election "in God's hands," she told a Christian evangelical leader on Wednesday.
Questioned by James Dobson on his national radio program about opinion polls that suggest the Republican ticket is trailing, John McCain's running mate said she was "not discouraged at all."
"It motivates us, makes us work that much harder," the Alaska governor told Dobson, head of Focus on the Family, an influential foundation among Christian conservatives in the United States.
"I'm going to know, at the end of the day, putting this in God's hands, that the right thing for America will be done," she added.
When Dobson told Palin that 430 people had prayed for her throughout the weekend, she replied: "It is that intercession that is so needed and so appreciated. I can feel the power of the prayer."
