Sen. Mark Pryor (D-AR) is highlighting his Christian faith in a new campaign ad.

In the 30-second ad, Pryor, who’s facing a tough 2014 re-election, speaks directly to the camera and says he’s not “ashamed to say that I believe in God, and I believe in His word.”

“The Bible teaches us no one has all the answers, only God does,” Pryor continued in the ad. “And neither political party is always right. This is my compass, my North Star. It gives me comfort and guidance to do what’s best for Arkansas.”

Pryor concludes the ad saying, “I’m Mark Pryor and I approve this message because this is who I am and what I believe.”

The ad begins airing Wednesday according to Arkansas’s KATV.
