Roughly 50 Christian leaders and worshipers participated in a prayer session at the White House last week as the House Democrats’ impeachment effort continues to move forward.
Christian pastors and faith-based leaders prayed over President Trump in the Oval Office on Friday — an event headed by Paula White-Cain, who serves as special adviser to the Faith and Opportunity Initiative in the White House.
Vice President Mike Pence kicked off the event by touting the Trump administration’s progress in protecting religious liberties. “Wonderful stopping by a worship leaders briefing today at the @WhiteHouse! America is a proud Nation of believers and our Administration will always defend the freedom of religion of every American, of every faith!” Pence tweeted, sharing a photo of himself addressing attendees.
After Pence’s remarks, senior White House aide Ivanka Trump spoke about the administration’s proposals for maternity leave and touted progress on the economy. Next, Sam Brownback, Ambassador-at-Large for International Religious Freedom, took questions on how the U.S. is helping to combat the persecution of Christians around the globe, Fox News reported.
