Trump Shows Humble Side in Prayer Meeting Featured

Trump Shows Fellowship With Pastors
Prayer Meeting Shows Different Side of the President 

By: Jake Fogg

 On Monday, July 11th, Donald Trump hosted a prayer circle in the Oval Office in which hands were laid on him by several pastors.  This will likely cause criticism from the left, who recently bashed Trump for standing up for “Western” values in his recent speech in Poland.

According to the Daily Mail, prayer meeting attendees included Evangelical pastor, Rodney Howard-Browne and his wife, who led the prayer in the Oval Office. Howard-Browne, a pastor from South Africa who came to the United States in 1987, posted to Facebook, the image of Trump with hands laid on him.

Other attendees included Johnnie Moore, former senior vice president of the well-known evangelical school, Liberty University; Vice President, Mike Pence; former Republican Congresswoman, Michelle Bachmann; Pastor of Prestonwood Baptist Church in Plano, TX, Jack Graham; and other spiritual leaders who were invited by the Office of Public Liason.

Moore, in a statement to CNN, said that Trump was “in good spirits” and “absolutely confident, entirely in command”. This, of course contradicts the narrative that has been presented by many of the mainstream media, which alleges that President Trump is wearing down as a result of the continuous fake news attacks from these same sources.

Moore went on to describe The President as “strong and focused as I have ever seen him. It was as if he was entirely above the fray.”

The CNN story only briefly mentioned the positive meeting even though its headline indicated that it was supposed to be the main topic. But, in its typical misleading style, the story, authored by Dan Merica and Kevin Liptak, chose to write more about negative issues surrounding Trump and “scandals” reported by other sister fake-news outlets such as the New York Times.

While the meeting itself was not atypical for any president, it was the context of it that differed. Moore explained, “We similarly prayed for President Obama but it’s different with President Trump. When we are praying for President Trump, we are praying within the context of a real relationship, of true friendship.”

While some may look upon this statement with cynicism, most devoted Christians understand what it actually meant. There is a stark difference between praying for, or over, a meeting and praying together in fellowship. Regardless of public stature, all involved in the latter, are humble as equals before God.

This meeting may be an attack against the public skepticism that some Christians have voiced since Trump’s presidential campaign. It was thought that once elected, Trump would turn his back on the evangelicals that helped him to get elected. However, since his election, President Donald Trump has not waivered in his support of Christianity. If anything, I might well be said that he has doubled-down on it and even become more spiritual.

His speech last week in Poland not only defended Western values, but even pointed out that the Polish people “want God.” Trump, even with the left criticizing him as a “Christian white supremacist”, seems to not notice or care what others think of his public support of Christianity.

The media has also bashed Trump in the past for his “alpha male” personality and highlighted him as “narcissistic” and “arrogant”, but the picture of him with hands laid on him tells a very different story. While he may be an assertive leader who is tough where men are concerned, it is evident that he is humble before that which he views as greater than himself.
