This is the moment evangelical leaders laid their hands on Donald Trump‘s back as they prayed over him in the Oval Office.

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

President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence can be seen closing their eyes and bowing their heads in the solemn moment. 

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. 

Mr Howard-Browne’s teachings on the concept of ‘holy laughter’ – an outpouring of joy caused by the Holy Spirit – helped to inspire the Toronto Blessing, which many believe to be an instance of mass blessing which took place in 1994.

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.’ 

President Trump put his Christian faith at the front and center of his campaign for the presidency, and made a particular point of appealing to evangelicals.

At dozens of his rallies he proudly read out polls showing strong approval ratings from the evangelical community, and thanked them for their support.

It was Trump’s positioning of himself as a defender of the faith – at one point vowing ‘to protect Christianity’ – that saw him ultimately defeat Ted Cruz to become the Republican nominee.

And this latest image attracted a lot of support on social media

  1. It’s like Semantha Scott began her prayer in Cedar Falls rally: I come here tonight a sinner. Any of these celebrity evangelicals who use this as a chance to judge and condemn Trump are themselves condemned.
    Hey Satan, they’re

    Trump is leading their political awakening.
    This country is being born again.
    Their spirits were already awake.

  3. If President Trump believes that Jesus is the Christ and that God the Father has raised Him from the dead, than the President is saved. If Donald Trump has read John 3:3 through to John 3: 16 and has then come to faith in Jesus Christ, believing that He is God the son and the Son of God and that God the Father has raised Him from the dead, then President Trump is a born again believer ready for the pre-trib rapture and for heaven. If the President is taken in the rapture which is imminent, then you know he was / is saved. John 3:16 necessitates belief in the One TriUne God (Trinity/Elohim in Hebrew) and it appears President Trump is a born again believer. Since he is saved by Free Grace (and NOT Lordship Salvation/works), his missing Church will not impact his position in Christ …. as for having ‘Christian -bones’ … that is just Lordship Salvation non-sense. As for all those evangelicals praying for him and surrounding him …. at the Rapture (which is the empirical litmus – test), we shall see how many of them will be taken and how many will be left behind. At the Rapture, which definitely IS pre-tribulational, the United State will be left without a President and therefore will be ripe for leadership by the antichrist who is just waiting in the wings. So, the message to North Americans …..? …. read John 3:3 to John 3:16 and get saved quickly …. time is short, very short indeed. Maranatha Lord

  4. I am not a Rodney Howard Browne fan whatsoever, he’s anathema to the truth of God’s Word, but you know what, anyone that wants to pray for our president will be heard by God, and our President needs everyone’s prayers. God bless and protect him
