President Donald Trump hosted a prayer circle in the Oval Office on Monday, together with Vice-President Mike Pence. Pastor Rodney Howard-Browne shared an image of it on Facebook. He described the moment as 'surreal' and 'humbling'.
"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,
"Who could ever even imagine - wow - we are going to see another great spiritual awakening," he added.
Paula White-Cain, chairman of Trump's evangelical advisory board also joined the meeting, together with several other pastors and Christian leaders, like Dr. Robert Jeffress.
Jeffress tweeted in response to the meeting: 'Ultimate selfie! Always an honor to visit with our great @POTUS! Forget #FakeNewsMedia. @realDonaldTrump is energized & determined to #MAGA!'
Not everyone is convinced by the show of faith. Kenneth Averell writes on Facebook: 'Lord help us all. How anyone sees Trump as the savior of the evangelicals is beyond me. Doesn't have a Christian bone in his body. Doesn't attend church. Multiple divorces. Adultery. Literally about every single commandment he's broken.'
Others are very happy seeing their president joining a prayer. Tammie Rogers: 'Praise God fill him Jesus with your spirit
In a statement emailed to The Christian Post, Johnnie Moore, president of the KAIROS Company and an attendee of the prayer meeting, said: "Evangelicals feel the door to the White House is as open as it has ever been before, even compared to Reagan according to several that were there whose career began back then."
Moore also stated that while he and the other evangelical leaders had prayed for former President Barack Obama, "it's different with President Trump."
