Online Prayers Held for Trump Amid COVID-19 Treatment: We Know Prayer Works

Christian leaders across the nation prayed for President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump, who are being treated for COVID-19, during an online “Call to Prayer” event hosted by Trump’s campaign team Sunday evening.

Lara Trump, the president’s campaign adviser and who is married to his son, Eric, said the president and his wife “are going to come through this, no problem, and it will be because of the power of prayer.”

“We know it works,” she added during the online event, while acknowledging that they have seen people’s messages of support.

Jentezen Franklin, senior pastor of Free Chapel, a multi-campus church in Gainesville, Georgia, noted that it means a lot that the president of the United States has called the whole nation to pray for him.

Trump, 74, and the first lady, 50, tested positive for COVID-19 on Friday. The president is currently hospitalized at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center but White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows told Fox News that he has been improving and may be discharged Monday.

Franklin said the day after the Trumps tested positive, he noticed that his 85-year-old mother’s eyes were a little puffy during breakfast. When Franklin asked her about it, she said she woke up at 3:30 am with Trump and his wife “on my mind, on my heart and on my lips.” She prayed for them for three hours.

Franklin said he thinks millions of people may have done what his mother did.

He said 1 Samuel 12:23 is speaking to the nation and to all those who are hurting and suffering during the COVID-19 pandemic.

“As for me, far be it from me that I should sin against the Lord by failing to pray for you. And I will teach you the way that is good and right,” reads the verse.

Bishop Harry Jackson, one of the chief advocates of the reconciled church movement and leader of Hope Christian Church in Maryland, said he drove past the hospital where the president is and saw numerous people standing outside with placards that said they love the president and are praying for him.

“God is about to release healing not only to the president but to the nation,” Jackson said Sunday and read Psalm 133.
Others who offered prayers during the Sunday event included Pastor Ramiro Pena, founder and senior pastor of Christ the King Church of Waco, Texas; Pastor Paula White-Cain, who leads New Destiny Christian Center in Florida and is Trump’s spiritual adviser; and Cissie Graham Lynch, granddaughter of late evangelical pastor Billy Graham and daughter of evangelist Franklin Graham.

“I declare and decree healing through your body right now … that every part of your body … will be healed by the superior blood of Jesus Christ right now,” White-Cain prayed. 

Lynch stressed, “The power of prayer that my family, that was taught from my grandfather, my grandmother and my parents and passing on to my generation, … Lara, I want you to know that this is just a small representation of homes and families that are praying for your family.”

As of early Monday, the “Call to Prayer” event video on Facebook had been viewed 1.7 million times.

On Sunday, Trump released a video on Twitter to share an update on his health from the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center.

“I feel much better now,” he said. “We’re working hard to get me all the way back, I have to be back, because we still have to make America great again.

“I’ll be back, I think I’ll be back soon and I look forward to finishing up the campaign the way we started and the way we’ve been doing and the kind of numbers we’ve been doing, we’ve been so proud of it.”

The president also thanked medical staff for attending to him and called the drugs he is taking “miracles coming down from God.”

He added that the next few days would be “the real test.”

Melania Trump is “doing well” as she’s “slightly younger” and “handling it statistically like it’s supposed to be handled,” Trump added.
Dr. Brian Garibaldi, who is part of the team treating Trump, said in an update Sunday, “Today, he feels well, he’s been up and around … Our hope is we can plan for discharge as early as tomorrow.”

Bloodshed: Resign Now, God is Angry with You, Popular Pastor Tells Buhari

Published

By



Following the butchery that occurred in Borno State on Saturday, a popular Nigerian cleric and leader of INRI Evangelical Spiritual Church, Primate Elisah Ayodele, has spoken against the act that claimed the lives of over 43 farmers.
He described that act as a sad occurrence and a confirmation that God is not happy with the government of President Muhammadu Buhari.
He made it known that the recent happenings in the country have shown beyond doubt that President Buhari can’t lead the country anymore, therefore, he should honourably resign for someone who has the capacity to lead the country.
He also reinstated his statement that President Muhammadu Buhari needs to sack his service chiefs before the security in Nigeria can improve, while describing the present ones as ‘weak and tired’
‘The killings that took place in Borno on Saturday are saddening, disheartening and shame to our dear country.
The stubbornness of President Muhammadu Buhari and not listening to advise has affected his government.
He knows what to do to control it but it’s as if he has made up his mind to shed blood of Nigerians. God is not happy with this government because lots of blood has been sucked and there is no way the government won’t pay for it.
This is sad, I’m sure the number is more than that, and that is why Buhari isn’t capable of leading this country again, he should resign honourably and let someone else who has the capacity to be there, he has failed Nigerians and there is no way God will be happy with him. How long will we continue to experience this.
The service chiefs are tired, they don’t know what to do, they are confused, they are just there making noise, they don’t have the stamina and idea.
My concern is Buhari has all it takes to do a positive thing about the security of the country but he has ignored the people, there is no peace, we have killings, armed robbery attack, it’s a shame to the government, he should have resigned honourably and have peace of mind.’
Meanwhile, Primate Ayodele in his annual book of Prophecy titled Warning to the nation had warned against the recent sad occurrence that happened in Ondo and Borno States.
On page 37 under Borno section, Primate Ayodele noted that Jere Local government should be careful of strange and unexpected attacks, which eventually happened.
Also on Page 86 under Ondo state section, he categorically said that the state should pray against losing a king or dethronement of a king, as he warned, news had it last week that a first class monarch in Ondo was shot dead by unknown armed men.

#EndSARS: ‘Wickedness of the Wicked Shall Consume the Wicked’

Published

The Mountain of Fire and Miracles Ministries is deeply saddened by the unwarranted, unnecessary, callous, barbaric and inhuman use of live bullets by the security forces on Nigerian youths in Lagos, who were on peaceful protests to register their grievances with regards to violation of their fundamental human rights by the security agents.
It is indeed a Black Tuesday in the annals of Lagos and Nigeria. This is least expected in this century. While youths all over the world are contributing their own quota to good governance, the security forces are shooting their own in cold blood, devoid of human feelings and empathy.
Biblical principles of the Almighty God, says that the wickedness of the wicked, will consume the wicked. Those who shed innocent blood, their own blood will certainly be shed.
Let it be known that whatever is done under the cover of darkness with the belief that nobody sees it, will surely be brought to light and God the Ultimate Judge, will definitely judge speedily.
For it is written in Psalm 10.18 “You will hear the cries of the oppressed and the orphans; you will judge in their favor, so that mortal men may cause terror no more”.
Our hearts and prayers go to the Nigerian youths and all others negatively affected by this unfortunate and avoidable situation. We pray that God Almighty will minister peace and comfort to their hearts.
We also commiserate with the parents and guardians of the victims of this extreme show of force ,lack of empathy and lack of brotherly love, from those that committed this dastardly act.
To the Nigerian government, we will like to advise that going forward, utmost care and caution, coupled with divine wisdom, should be employed in bringing a lasting solution to the problem at hand.
Nigeria is all we have as Nigerians.
LET THE PEACE OF GOD REIGN SUPREME IN NIGERIA IN JESUS’ MIGHTY NAME. AMEN.
