Falwell Praises Trump For ‘Bold Truthful’ Words On Charlottesville

President Donald Trump received a ringing endorsement Wednesday from one evangelical supporter who is not turning his back on the president.

“Finally a leader in WH. Jobs returning, N Korea backing down, bold truthful stmt about #charlottesville tragedy. So proud of @realdonaldtrump,” Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr. tweeted.

On Tuesday, Trump said both sides in the Charlottesville violence were to blame for letting unrest get out of hand. Falwell is not the only major evangelical figure to support Trump.

On Sunday, when many voices were condemning Trump for blaming both sides in his response to Saturday’s violence in Charlottesville, Rev. Franklin Graham stood by him.

“Shame on the politicians who are trying to push blame on President Trump for what happened in #Charlottesville, VA. That’s absurd,” Graham wrote on his Facebook page.

“What about the politicians such as the city council who voted to remove a memorial that had been in place since 1924, regardless of the possible repercussions? How about the city politicians who issued the permit for the lawful demonstration to defend the statue? And why didn’t the mayor or the governor see that a powder keg was about to explode and stop it before it got started? Instead they want to blame President Donald J. Trump for everything,” he wrote.

Graham said that the division taking place furthers the ends of Satan.

“Really, this boils down to evil in people’s hearts. Satan is behind it all. He wants division, he wants unrest, he wants violence and hatred. He’s the enemy of peace and unity. I denounce bigotry and racism of every form, be it black, white or any other. My prayer is that our nation will come together. We are stronger together, and our answers lie in turning to God,” he wrote.

Some clergy backed Trump’s comments Monday condemning neo-Nazis.

“I condemn the forces of white nationalism, white supremacy and anti-Semitism that divide our country today, and I also condemn those who seek to politicize it all for their political gain,” said minister Samuel Rodriguez, who took part in Trump’s inauguration.

“Unless, we bridge this senseless and partisan divide there will be more horrors to come. It’s on each of us to be a part of solution and it begins with turning our political swords into plowshares. We must begin to work together to heal our nation,” he said.

Prayers For Trump! Group of Pastors form Prayer Circle with President in the Oval


This is a moment you wouldn’t catch Barack Obama in.

A group of evangelical leaders were allowed into the oval office to form a prayer circle with the president and vice president. They laid their hands on President Trump’s back during the prayer.

Photos from the moment show Trump and Pence closing their eyes and bowing their heads.

Evangelical pastor Rodney Howard-Browne led a prayer circle alongside his wife Adonica in the White House and then shared the image on Facebook.

The group were invited to pray with Trump during a meeting with members of The Office of Public Liaison.

Others pictured included Jack Graham, the pastor of Prestonwood Baptist Church in Plano, Texas, and Michele Bachmann, the former Republican congresswoman from Minnesota.

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.

Johnnie Moore, a former senior vice president at Liberty University, a large evangelical university in Virginia, was also at the meeting.

He told CNN that they used to also pray with Obama, but with Trump it is different.

‘When we are praying for President Trump, we are praying within the context of a real relationship, of true friendship,’ he said.

‘He was also in good spirits,’ Moore said. ‘He was as strong and focused as I have ever seen him. It was as if he was entirely above the fray.’

A Prayer for Our Nation on this July 4, 2017


The following prayer for our Nation was adapted from Psalms 80.

Hear us, our Heavenly ABBA Father, You who lead Your Church in America. You who sit enthroned between the cherubim, shine forth before Your people. Awaken Your might; come and save us.

Restore us, ABBA Father; make Your face shine on us, that we may be saved.

How long, Lord God Almighty, will Your anger smolder against the prayers of Your people? You have fed us with the bread of tears; You have made us drink tears by the bowlful. You have made us an object of contention to our neighbors, and our enemies mock us.

Restore us, ABBA Father; make Your face shine on us, that we may be saved.

You transplanted a vine from Europe; You drove out the nations and planted it. You cleared the ground for it, and it took root and filled the land. The mountains are covered with its shade, the mighty cedars with its branches. Its branches reached from Sea to Sea, its shoots from Canada to Mexico.

Why have You broken down our nation so that all who pass by pick its grapes? People who have come here illegally, acting like Boars from the forest ravage our economy, resources and taxes, while those from within who hate You, all You Stand for, Your Word and especially Your Church, they act as insects from the fields destroying your inspired Constitution and our Liberty.

Return to us, God Almighty! Look down from heaven and see! Watch over this vine, the root Your right hand has planted, the Branch You have raised up for Yourself. Your vine is cut down, it is burned with fire; at Your rebuke Your people perish.

Let Your hand rest on the man at Your right hand, the son of man, Jesus our Lord and Savior Who You raised from the dead for our salvation. We will never turn away from You; revive us, and we will call on Your name.

Restore us, ABBA Father, Lord God Almighty; make Your face shine on us, that we may be saved.

In Jesus Mighty Name above all names, AMEN!

He posted on Facebook Friday saying, “Last night I had a nice chat with Jennifer Scalise, who reports that Steve is fighting hard and getting better. They are both staying #ScaliseStrong, and Laura and I are praying for the Congressman’s full and speedy recovery.”

Many of the former president’s followers praised him for his care and compassion.

“Thank you Mr. President and Mrs. Bush for being such wonderful role models and genuinely compassionate people,” one follower wrote.

Scalise, the House Majority Whip, was shot Wednesday in Alexandria, Va., by a lone gunman while he and other Republican congressmen were practicing for the annual Congressional Baseball Game for Charity. Witnesses to the event said Scalise was shot in the left hip while standing at second base. He was transported to the MedStar Washington Hospital Center where he is currently in critical condition. However, doctors said Friday they are encouraged by his improvement over the past 36 hours.

On Wednesday night, President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania went to the hospital for a short visit with the congressman and his wife. After the visit, Trump tweeted: “Just left hospital. Rep. Steve Scalise, one of the truly great people, is in very tough shape – but he is a real fighter. Pray for Steve!”

Steve Scalise’s wife, Jennifer Scalise, released a statement Friday on her husband’s Twitter page, thanking people for “the incredible amount of prayers and warm wishes.”

The shooter, James T. Hodgkinson, was shot by the police and subsequently died from his injuries.

May you and yours enjoy the most God Blessed Thanksgiving ever, In Jesus Wonderful Name, Amen.
