Certainly some – like the fella above – could do with shedding a stone or two, but it remains to be seen how many of Trump’s supporters will put down their forks in support of a national day of fasting and prayer for the President.
The fast, according to this report, has been proposed by James Dobson, a crackpot American evangelist who founded a right wing anti-LGBT outfit called Focus on the Family in 1977.
Last week, he joined Intercessors for America for is monthly prayer conference call, during which he called on conservative Christians to engage in a day of fasting and prayer against efforts to impeach President Trump.
Dobson, above, said that he “felt sorry for this man” when he and other Religious Right leaders met with Trump in the Oval Office last month because:
So many people obviously hate him … He faces the combined opposition from the mainstream media, from members of Congress – both Democrats and Republicans, not all of them, but many of them – the entertainment industry, [and] the special interest groups who seem determined to bring him down.
This country will be in serious trouble if they’re successful in impeaching this man. I’m calling for a nationwide movement to pray for him. I’m calling for a day of fasting and prayer. I hope that Christian people from coast to coast will join in that time; the date is your choosing, but we do need to be praying for our President.
Dobson went on to say that it was obvious that “the Lord played a role in the election of Donald Trump” and that “he was raised up for such a time as this” in order to protect the Supreme Court, the definition of marriage, religious liberty and the sanctity of life.
It seemed evident on election night that the Lord gave us victory. So Lord, if that is true, we ask you to protect our President from anything that could hurt him.
