The audience was surprised…
And the mainstream media was absent.
This year’s National Day of Prayer celebration in the White House Rose Garden began with First Lady Melania Trump reading Aaron’s benediction prayer from Numbers 6:24-26,
“The Lord bless you and keep you;
The Lord make His face shine upon you, and be gracious to you;
The Lord lift up His countenance upon you and give you peace.”
The theme of this year’s event was “Love One Another” – the command Jesus gave to His disciples in John 13:34-35.
President Trump spoke … followed by Vice President Mike Pence and others.
Mike Pence made 2 surprising announcements in his comments that you haven’t heard before – because the media hasn’t reported them:
- President Trump is one of only 4 presidents in U.S. history who have issued multiple calls to national prayer in a single year.
- President Trump begins every cabinet meeting with prayer.
