A number of pastors in the US have responded in prayer to the news that President Donald Trump has tested positive for Covid-19. Trump revealed the news in a tweet early Friday morning, noting that First Lady Melania had also tested positive.
“We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately,” Trump said. “We will get through this TOGETHER.”
In response, prominent California pastor Greg Laurie said he was praying for God’s intervention and healing” for the first couple.
Rev. Johnnie Moore, President of the Congress of Christian Leaders and commissioner with the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom (USCIRF), asked God to touch the presidential couple with “healing grace”.
“Give them a speedy recovery,” he prayed.
