Trump Finds Time To Join 700 Pastors To Pray Despite Dealing With Crisis
President Donald Trump prayed with 700 pastors for God to bless America during the coronavirus crisis.
Perkins asked Trump for suggestions as to what Americans should pray for. President Trump responded: “The health of the country; the strength of our country. We were doing something amazing, and then one day, it just ended. So that would be it.” After Perkins prayed for the president, Trump offered, “You know, you mentioned the word ‘stamina.’ We do need stamina. So thank you very much.”
We are speaking divine guidance, wisdom and health as we find a way together. Our nation, President, and citizens are in Your capable hands God.
We believe. God is enough.

On Friday, despite the fact that President Trump has to spend all his time dealing with the decisions to be made vis-a-vis the coronavirus, he heard that Vice President Mike Pence was about to join a conference call with 700 pastors and asked to join them so they could pray together.
As Tony Perkins of the Family Research Council, which arranged the conference call, noted, Pence stated, “When I told the president I was going to be speaking to all of you, [he was]in the midst of an extraordinarily busy day. [But] he looked at me and said, ‘I have to find time. I need to find time.’” Pence noted, “The prayers of the people on this call mean [everything]to him…”
Perkins stated that Trump began by commenting that tt’s a “wild world,” that the coronavirus “came upon us so suddenly. And we were doing better than we’ve ever done before as a country in terms of the economy — and then, all of the sudden, we got hit with this. So we had to close it down. We’re actually paying a big price to close it down. Never happened before.” But then the president remained optimistic, saying, “I think we’re going to come back stronger than ever before.”
Trump told the pastors, “I want to thank you for praying for our country and for those who are sick. You do such an incredible job. You’re very inspirational people. And I’m with you all the way. You know that you see what we’ve done for right to life and all of the things that we’ve been working so hard together. I’ve been working with many of the people on the call. Many, many of the people. We’ve had tremendous support. But we are going to get over this.” More
Our president understands the absolute necessity of prayer and in the midst of his crazy busy schedule, asserted the need to find time to participate in this prayer event. God Bless President Donald J. Trump and God Bless the United States of America.
President Trump has sacrificed so much too help America. We need to continue to pray that God gives all of our leaders’ wisdom and strength in decision making during this time.
