Faith Community Wants the First Thing the Newly Elected President to See from Christians is Public Prayer
Contact: Rev. Patrick Mahoney, 540-538-4741
WASHINGTON, Nov. 8, 2016 /Christian Newswire/ -- Church on the Hill will be leading a prayer vigil in front of the White House on Pennsylvania Ave., on the east side of the chain link fence.
The prayer vigil will be on Wednesday, November 9, at 11:00 A.M.
It is imperative the first thing our next President sees from the Christian community is humble, sincere prayer and intercession being offered for them.
Rev. Patrick Mahoney, Pastor of Church on the Hill and Director of the Christian Defense Coalition both based in Washington, D.C., comments;
"1 Timothy 2:1-2 states; 'I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people; for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.' The Bible encourages Christians to pray for those in leadership regardless if we agree with their policies or oppose them.
"We are not to pray in any greater way for Donald Trump over Hillary Clinton or the other way around when one of them becomes President. Rather, we are to passionately seek God for His direction, guidance and leading for both regardless of whoever resides in the White House.
"After a very bitter and divisive campaign season, it is critical that the first thing our next President sees from the Christian community is humble prayer and intersession offered to God on their behalf. Through prayer, we can see God shift, shape and transform history."
Rev. Mahoney will be praying the Inauguration Prayer from President Nixon's Inauguration offered by Billy Graham. The link is below.
