President Trump made an unscheduled stop after a visit to his golf club on Sunday. Here’s what happened…
In the wake of the horrible mass shooting in Virginia Beach on Friday which left 12 dead, and many questions about motive, President Trump made a stop at McLean Bible Church in Vienne, VA. Judd Deere, a White House spokesman, said in a statement: “President Donald J. Trump is visiting McLean Bible Church in Vienna, VA, to visit with the Pastor and pray for the victims and community of Virginia Beach.”
As ClashDaily reported earlier, Franklin Graham and over 200 Christian leaders had called for a special day of prayer for the President on June 2 — yesterday.
When the President walked onto the stage wearing his golf shoes. Pastor David Platt took the opportunity to pray for the President.
I want to ask us to bow our heads together now and pray for our President.
Oh God, we praise You as the one Universal King over all. You are our leader and our Lord and we worship You. There’s one God and one Savior and it’s You and Your name is Jesus and we exalt You, Jesus. And we know we need Your mercy, we need Your grace, we need Your help, we need Your wisdom in our country. And so we stand right now on behalf of our President and we pray for Your grace and Your mercy and Your wisdom upon him.
God, we pray that he would know how much You love him so much that You sent Jesus to die for his sins, our sins. So we pray that he would look to You and he would trust in You, he would lean on You, that he would govern and make decisions in ways that are good for justice and good for righteousness and good for equity— every good path.
Lord we pray, we pray that You would give him all of the grace that he needs to govern in ways that we just saw in 1 Timothy 2 that lead to peaceful and quiet lives — godly and dignified in every way. God, we pray for Your blessing in that way upon his family. We pray that You give him strength, we pray that You give him clarity, wisdom, wisdom. The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom. Fools despise wisdom and instruction. Please, oh God, give him wisdom and help him to lead our country. Alongside other leaders we pray today for leaders in Congress we pray for leaders in courts, we pray for leaders in national and state levels. Please, oh God, help us to look to You, help us to trust in Your word, help us to seek Your wisdom and live in ways that reflect Your love and Your grace, Your righteousness and Your justice. We pray for your blessings on our President toward that end. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
