Borowicz rose to national attention when she gave an invocation at the start of a state house session in which she declared, "every knee will bow and every tongue will confess that you, Jesus, are Lord." The prayer was considered especially offensive since it came on the same day that Movita Johnson-Harrell was sworn in as the first Muslim woman to serve in the chamber. Borowicz brushed off the criticism in an interview with Todd Starnes on Fox News Radio, saying she prayed in the same manner she always prayed. She claimed that people were offended because "there's power in the name of Jesus."
Borowicz' husband, Jason, is associate pastor at Crossroads Community Church, a nondenominational charismatic church in Jersey Shore.
