Vice President Mike Pence revealed on the National Day of Prayer that the President of the United States of America, Donald Trump, is quite principled when it comes to praying for direction about the nation’s business.
Pence, in an interview with CBN News, said the president has encourage praying in the White House by personally promoting the practice himself.
“There’s prayer going on on a regular basis in this White House. And it’s one of the most meaningful things to me, whether it’s public meetings or not, I’ve lost count of the number of times that the president has nudged me, or nudged another member of the Cabinet and said, ‘Let’s start this meeting with prayer,'” Pence said.
In his remarks Thursday, President Trump said: “The faith initiative will help design new policies that recognize the vital role of faith in our families, in our communities, and our great country.”
He further noted that: “This office will also help ensure that faith-based organizations will have equal access to government funding and the equal right to exercise their deeply held beliefs. We take this step because we know that in solving the many, many problems and our great challenges, faith is more powerful than government. And nothing is more powerful than God.”
