How to Pray for President Trump

One simple prayer request is more important than all the others.

It seems to me that the most pressing prayer request for our new President is that he become a Christian. In every denomination and tradition of the Christian Church, there is one thing that is universally required for reconciliation with God, salvation, and inclusion into the body of Christ: penance. Penance means asking for forgiveness. Believing in God, according to the Bible, does not cut it.

 

“You believe that God is one; you do well. Even the demons believe–and shudder!” James 2:19

Our President, so far as we know, has not asked for forgiveness. Perhaps he has done so privately and not told anyone about it. Perhaps other Presidents have not either and said they did or were never asked the question. But on the evidence we have, Donald Trump has not asked for forgiveness and therefore has not sought salvation. So he is not a Christian. The Church’s desire is that every knee bow and tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord from the most powerful to the least. Let’s pray that our President seek forgiveness and become a Christian.
