Amid Impeachment Battle, Christian Pastors and Worship Leaders Gather to Lay Hands on President Trump


As easy as it is to roll our eyes at the impeachment circus in Washington DC, it can be easy to forget that while we may give Trump our support, or at least, refuse to pay heed to the Democrats’ obstructionist efforts, at the end of the day, POTUS needs the prayers of faithful Christians more than anything else.

And fortunately, as a man who has surrounded himself with a great many believers, he is being covered in prayer. According to Fox News, prominent pastors and worship leaders gathered to pray for the President in the Oval Office last week. Trump told the group “he needs prayer now more than ever amid the intensifying impeachment probe on Capitol Hill.”

How’s that for the impeachment story we all needed this week? 

According to Fox News, around 50 worship leaders from around the US came together for an impromptu “faith briefing” organized by Paula White-Cain, the president’s personal pastor.

“All 50 of us crammed into the Oval Office. He sat at his desk and he said pray for me,” said Sean Feucht, a Bethel Music worship leader. Feucht is running for Congress in California’s Third Congressional District.

“We just laid our hands on him and prayed for him. It was like a real intense, hardcore prayer. It was so wild,” Feucht recounted. “I could not believe he invited us in. That he carved out time to meet with us.”

“When America is strong, the world is a better place,” said Brian Houston, the global senior pastor of Hillsong Church. “What a great opportunity it’s been to see some of the initiatives that are happening to help freedom of religion.”

“The thing that moved me the most was just how everyone is so for making sure we’re changing people’s lives and not leaving those that are marginalized and those that have been trafficked…they’re working to end these things and change these things,” Kari Jobe, a worship leader from Nashville, said. “I’ve just been in tears all day….God is moving!”

Vice President Pence took to Twitter to express his excitement over the day and to appreciate our religious liberties here in America, “Wonderful stopping by a worship leaders briefing today at the White House!” Pence wrote, “America is a proud Nation of believers and our Administration will always defend the freedom of religion of every American, of every faith!”

From Fox News:

Ivanka Trump discussed women’s rights, prison reform, maternity leave and the economy. Sam Brownback, Ambassador-at-Large for International Religious Freedom, addressed the group and answered questions about what America is doing for religious liberty around the world.

When Trump surprised them in Cabinet Room, he welcomed them and joked about House Speaker Nancy Pelosi praying for him.

“Nancy Pelosi says that she prays for me, but she doesn’t tell anyone what she prays for,” he said. “But I know you guys have come to pray for me and I know you care about what’s happening in this administration.”

Feucht said: “I shook his hand and said ‘Mr. President, I’m from California and I just want to let you know there’s people out in California that support you.”

But, of course, not everyone is excited by the events that took place at the White House. Naturally, the Freedom From Religion Foundation wasted no time in expressing their concern over the gathering and announced they’ll be doing an “investigation.”

“Welcoming a group of Christian Nationalists to carry out a governmental ‘takeover’ is deeply disturbing, since it shows a contempt for the foundational American principle of state-church separation,” read a statement which was clearly rife with hilarious hyperbole made by Annie Laurie Gaylor, FFRF co-president. “It should alarm every citizen.”

Praise the Lord for this day of worship at the White House!
