The unique presidency of Donald Trump has had its fair share of adversity, and while the President is surrounded by politicians who mostly wish him well, he’s also getting a little help from the man upstairs.
This past week has been extremely trying for the newly elected Commander in Chief as rumors continue to swirl about his son’s connection to a Russian lawyer and her possible information scam. The democrats, of course, have seized the moment in order to perpetuate their asinine conspiracy theory that Donald Trump is a Russian operative in the Oval Office, leading many in the mainstream media to further speculate about just how best to rid themselves of the “Trump problem”.
In reality, however, the largest battle still looming for the President has nothing to do with the phony accusations of Kremlin meddling in the 2016 election. Rather, the President’s uphill battle for healthcare reform maintains only a few dozen days of the congressional calendar to become complete. That is why, now above all other times, the President is reaching out for help from the Almighty.
“Evangelical pastor Rodney Howard-Browne led a prayer circle alongside his wife Adonica in the White House and then shared the image on Facebook.
“President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence can be seen closing their eyes and bowing their heads in the solemn moment.
“The group were invited to pray with Trump during a meeting with members of The Office of Public Liaison.
“Mr Howard-Browne, who is from South Africa but came to America in 1987 after a ‘calling from God’, described the moment as ‘surreal’ and ‘humbling’.
“He wrote: ‘Yesterday I was asked by Pastor Paula White-Cain to pray over our 45th President – what a humbling moment standing in the Oval Office – laying hands and praying for our President – Supernatural Wisdom, Guidance and Protection – who could ever even imagine – wow – we are going to see another great spiritual awakening. “
While many on the left have attempted to portray Trump as a callous and shallow businessman whose only concern is the wealth of his family, moments such as this have proven that there is much more to the unconventional President than meets the eye.
During the election of 2016, faith was nearly a non-issue. Ted Cruz, the only openly evangelical candidate on the campaign trail, largely shied away from overt Christianity in an effort to compete with the meticulous precision of other candidates. Trump, to his credit, has been opening up about his own faith in recent weeks, with sprinkled-in comments referring to his own beliefs during recent speaking appearances.
