President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump chose to attend St. John’s Church for their place of worship on the newly proclaimed National Day of Prayer.
As President Trump looks toward a month already filled with must-do items, crises of both domestic and global import collided on him Sunday.
Pastor Ronnie Floyd offered a prayer on air for the national day of prayer on Sunday.
According to the Washington Post, President Trump and Melania arrived for church services at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday. Trump does not attend the church regularly.
The option of a military response was also suggested in an early morning tweet from the president.
The visit of the St. John’s Episcopal Church on Sunday morning was not announced to the departure from White House. However, he is a self-described Presbyterian.
“We are deeply grateful for those performing acts of service, and we pray for healing and comfort for those in need”, the president’s proclamation states. “Melania and I are grateful to everyone devoting time, effort, and resources to the ongoing response, recovery and rebuilding efforts”.
In the official proclamation of the declaration of National Day of Prayer date on Friday, President said, “We invite all Americans to join us as we continue to pray for those who have lost family members or friends, and for those who are suffering in this time of crisis”.
“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 bad storm”, Trump says.
“Tomorrow’s a major day, so go to your congregation and implore and appreciate the day”, the president coordinated typhoon casualties and people on call amid his visit to Texas on Saturday.
