Christians Pray Over President Trump

"As long as I'm President, no one is going to stop you from practicing your faith or from preaching what is in your heart", Trump told evangelicals at the Faith & Freedom Coalition last month in Washington.

A former senior vice president at Liberty University, Johnnie Moore, also had the opportunity to be at the meeting.

But if Trump presents himself as evangelicals' saving grace, the covenant can run both ways.

To them, Donald Trump, like Jesus, can do no wrong.

Tuesday's release of photos of a chance encounter between evangelicals and President Donald Trump in the White House, which shows leading evangelicals laying hands on and praying for the president of the United States in the Oval Office, has touched off an angry backlash on Twitter and in the mainstream media. Vice President Pence attended the gathering and can be seen praying for the president. To some, the timing seemed suspicious.

Page said he "was honored to be a part of the group of faith leaders" who met and prayed with Trump. Was he "getting religion" just as the waters were rising around his White House?

The men prayed for the president during a meeting.

But beyond the White House and far-right pundits, Don Jr.is being schooled on what it truly means to be "transparent". Are you in favor of President Trump receiving prayer in the White House or are you against it?

The group, many of whom advised Trump during the campaign, heard reports from administration officials and gave feedback on issues like Israel's security, judicial nominations and the Senate's health care bill. Vice President Mike Pence also appeared in the picture with his eyes closed as he joined the prayer circle, CNN detailed.

The group was said to have prayed for the president during a meeting with members of the Office of Public liaison.

"Then we asked if we could pray with him", Land said.

"I'd never been in the Oval Office and, obviously, it was unexpected", he said. "It's seen as the Beltway chasing its own tail". I think you do that in the best of times and the worst of times.

Witnessing these evangelical false prophets laying their hands on Trump as a way of expressing support of the evil buffoon makes me want to puke.

"We similarly prayed for President Obama, but it's different with President Trump", Moore told CNN. During his campaign, some of the same pastors who were there Monday prayed over him at Trump Tower in 2015, and faith leaders prayed with their hands outstretched during his campaign in 2016. At some of his rallies, Trump had proudly read out polls showing strong approval ratings from the evangelical community.

The evangelicals invited to these meetings sometimes laud Trump with an almighty allotment of praise.

Photos of the gathering were posted by Johnnie Moore, who handles media relations for several pastors and ministries. Other people who attended the service include Michelle Bachmann and Pastor Jack Graham.

But, as even Trump has acknowledged, his relationship with evangelicals remains somewhat transactional.

Deibert added that his grandfather was a "Lutheran minister who would have been equally repulsed" by the Christians praying with Trump. Some evangelicals, in turn, have buffered him with a steady stream of adulation. "Very dedicated Christians", said Jeffress.

"This wasn't the first time, it won't be the last time", he says.
