US President Donald Trump kicked off his re-election bid for the 2020 Presidential election with powerful prayer led by his spiritual advisor Paula White, who was among several key Christian leaders who turned out for the rally.

“I pray for the Spirit of the Lord to rest upon our president, and let Your favor cause his horn, his power to be exalted according to Psalm Chapter 89 verse 17,” White opened. “Father You have raised President Trump up for such a time as this.”

She continued her prayer saying, “Let every demonic network that has aligned itself against the purpose, against the calling of President Trump, let it be broken, let it be torn down in the name of Jesus.”

White then declared: “I secure his calling, I secure his purpose, I secure his family, and we secure victory in the name which is above every name, the name that has never failed, for this nation, and for my life, the name of Jesus Christ.”

Paula White mentions in a commentary for CBN, “the President’s extraordinary commitment to religious liberty has been obvious since the very beginning of his presidency — just two weeks after his inauguration, Donald Trump attended the National Prayer Breakfast where he stressed the importance of preserving and cherishing religious values.”

Despite recent polls pointing to a tough re-election battle, Trump 2020 campaign manager Brad Parscale while speaking with CBS News said he believes an “electoral landslide” is at hand for the incumbent USA president.

“Tonight I stand before you to officially launch my campaign for a second term as president of the United States,” Mr Trump told supporters at the packed-out rally on Tuesday in Orlando. “I promise you I will never ever let you down.”

“We are going to keep America great again,” he added.

The US president has also received prayers from several Christian leaders recently:

CBN News previously reported on Franklin Graham calling for Christians to pray for President Trump. “This is not a political endorsement,” Graham said. “It’s just simply praying for the President. The Bible instructs us to pray for those who are in authority.”

Graham said “no president has been attacked” more than Trump and that “the only hope for him, and this nation is God.”
