Washington DC – May 2, 2019 – Report By: Dr. June Knight
On Thursday, May 2, 2019, the White House hosted the annual National Day of Prayer celebration. This is not the same event as the National Day of Prayer Task Force event. At this White House celebration, both the Vice President and President spoke to a crowd of mixed religions. At first I questioned this because I thought it was only for Christians being that we are a Christian nation.
However, I realized that the nation is made up of many religions, although Christianity is the majority religion. To the Christians, we still consider this a Christian Nation. Because it does have many religions within it, the White House wants to make the biggest religions welcome to pray on this day. Each of the big religion leaders spoke at the event.
The power of the day was from Pastor Paula White. She said a powerful prayer. Her husband, Jonathon Cain, led the worship with a Baptist Choir.
It was a great day.
11:23 A.M. EDT
THE FIRST LADY: Good morning. Welcome to the White House. Please bow your heads for a prayer.
The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord makes his face to shine upon you and be gracious to you; the Lord lift up his countenance upon you and give you peace. Amen.
THE PRESIDENT: Thank you very much, honey. Thank you. (Applause.) Please. Thank you very much. And thank you, Melania, for the great job you do as First Lady. People love you. No matter where I go, they love you. (Applause.)
On this National Day of Prayer, the First Lady and I are absolutely delighted to welcome all of you to the White House. A very special occasion for us; I know it is for you, too. The White House is a very, very special place.
I’d like to begin by sending our prayers to the people of Venezuela in their righteous struggle for freedom. (Applause.) The brutal repression of the Venezuelan people must end and it must end soon. People are starving. They have no food. They have no water. And this was once one of the wealthiest countries in the world. So we wish them well. We’ll be there to help, and we are there to help. Thank you.
Very importantly, this morning, we’re grateful to be joined by our representatives — and great representatives they are. And I want to start with somebody who’s very special to the success of our administration.
We’re doing things that haven’t been done in a long time, including an economy that may be the best ever. (Applause.) And he’s been a big, big help. You’ll never guess who that is: Mike Pence, Vice President. (Applause.)
