DENVER (AP) -- More than two dozen Colorado state lawmakers are reviving a "prayer caucus" to meet during the legislative session to pray and talk about their faith.

All but two of the members are Republican. The caucus, announced Tuesday, includes members of the House and Senate.

Some members of the legislature already hold pre-session bible studies and "prayer caucus" meetings have met in previous years.

Republican Sen. Scott Renfroe of Greeley is co-chairman of the new caucus and he envisions the new group adding to the bible meetings, not replacing them.

Renfroe says it has not yet been determined how often the prayer caucus will meet next session. He says it is important for lawmakers to take some time to reflect on their faiths.

The members of the Colorado Legislative Prayer Caucus are:

-Sen. Scott Renfroe
-Sen. Mike Kopp
-Sen. Greg Brophy
-Sen. Bill Cadman
-Sen. Kevin Grantham
-Sen. Ted Harvey
-Sen. Keith King
-Sen. Kent Lambert
-Sen. Kevin Lundberg
-Sen. Mark Scheffel

-Rep. John Soper
-Rep. Amy Stephens
-Rep. David Balmer
-Rep. Mark Barker
-Rep. Jon Becker
-Rep. J. Paul Brown
-Rep. Brian DelGrosso
-Rep. Rhonda Fields
-Rep. Chris Holbert
-Rep. Janak Joshi
-Rep. James Kerr
-Rep. Tom Massey
-Rep. BJ Nikkel
-Rep. Ray Scott
-Rep. Jerry Sonnenberg
-Rep. Ken Summers
-Rep. Spencer Swalm
