Today President Trump has declared a day of National Prayer for the victims of hurricane Harvey. There have been many presidents in Americas young history that have declared National Days of Prayers starting from President George Washington but this declaration has an extra ring to We The Peoples ears because it is oh so very refreshing to hear from a President of The United States request his fellow citizens to look up to God and pray considering the hunger was here from the citizens of America for a president to do just that considering that for eight years there was Obama who claimed he was a Christian but you tell me I ask you what Christian would say this as Obama did: “Unless we get on our high horse and think that this is unique to some other place, remember that during the Crusades and Inquisition, people committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ. In our home country, slavery and Jim Crow all too often was justified in the name of Christ. So it is not unique to one group or one religion. There is a tendency in us, a simple tendency that can pervert and distort our faith.”
For Obama to use the word “our” in his trying to prove his point of mocking Christianity is disgusting and to make the whole statement laughably the Christians actions was to protect themselves from the Muslims who were slaughtering them and on top of that it happened hundreds of years ago. My patriots no true Christian would belittle Christianity if they claimed they were Christian the way Obama does and to make it even worst that was not the first time Obama mocked Christianity. That’s why Trumps National Day of Prayer was in the wanting, We The People have been hungry for it for a long time now.
From President Trump: “Now, therefore, I, Donald J. Trump, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim September 3, 2017, as a National Day of Prayer for the Victims of Hurricane Harvey and for our National Response and Recovery Efforts. We give thanks for the generosity and goodness of all those who have responded to the needs of their fellow Americans. I urge Americans of all faiths and religious traditions and backgrounds to offer prayers today for all those harmed by Hurricane Harvey, including people who have lost family members or been injured, those who have lost homes or other property, and our first responders, law enforcement officers, military personnel, and medical professionals leading the response and recovery efforts. Each of us, in our own way, may call upon our God for strength and comfort during this difficult time. I call on all Americans and houses of worship throughout the Nation to join in one voice of prayer, as we seek to uplift one another and assist those suffering from the consequences of this terrible storm.”
This is the America I know and this is how I expect my president to respond. Yes I was also one of the many millions of Americans who was hungry for a God fearing President such as Donald Trump. After all God heard our prayers and gave us Trump the least President Trump can do is reach out to Him and he has shown with this National Day of Prayer that he did just that and I have the faith that President Trump will reach out to God very often in the future. May God Bless America!
