Family Research Council Asks For Prayer To Protect Trump From Media
Tony Perkins, president of the Christian-based Family Research Council, called on his followers to pray that President Donald Trump will be protected from journalists.
Perkins made his prayer plea while asking for financial donations in a newsletter on Dec. 14, notes Right Wing Watch:
I’m not ashamed to say it: I PRAY FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP!
You too, I’m sure!
I can tell you firsthand, Donald Trump needs and appreciates our prayers—for God’s wisdom and guidance, for His grace and protection, and for His will to be done and our nation blessed to the glory of God.
As committed followers of Jesus Christ, we are directed to pray for the leaders God has placed in authority across our land. All Americans—especially God’s people—could probably use a gentle reminder in these troubled times.
Th newsletter added:
Not since 9/11 can I recall a time when our president needed praying Christians like you and me in his corner more than he does today.
Without citing any proof, Perkins claimed Trump was under “non-stop vicious personal attacks” from “his political opponents and the left-wing news media.”
The newsletter included a bumper sticker that said “Pray For President Trump” and included the Bible verse: 1 Tim. 2:1-4:
