'He Truly Is a Man of God': Lara Trump Targets 'Fake News' in Defense of the President
As much as I liked Trump's rally last night in Phoenix, and what he had to say, what really struck me, and continues to strike me is the emphasis he puts on prayer. Having Franklin Graham and Alveda King come out to pray beforehand for the nation, speaks volumes about President Trump.
Dr. Franklin began his prayer saying:
"Our heavenly Father, You have blessed our country more than any nation on Earth and we acknowledge that apart from you we have no hope. We come tonight as a troubled nation. We are broken spiritually. We are divided politically. We are divided racially, and we are adrift morally, following the whatever direction the wind of popular culture blows with no regard for Your Word or the consequences of our disobedience. We ask tonight for your help."
PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP NEWS & LIVE SPEECH
Before Dr. Franklin prayed, Alveda King, the niece of Martin Luther King prayed powerfully.
Her opening prayer began:
"Dear Heavenly Father, in the name of Jesus, by the power of your Holy Spirit we come. Thanking you for your love, mercy, and grace. Asking that your mercy tempered the judgement we surely deserve. We pray in deep and sincere repentance, asking for your forgiveness of our sins. Where we should be living together as brothers and sisters, we, as a nation, have rejected your truth of one blood, one human race, and embraced racial division.”
