Alveda King, the niece of civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr., revealed Monday that she voted for President-elect Donald Trump.
In American Thinker commentator Mark C. Abbot column on “latest media-manufactured controversy surrounding President-elect Trump involves Congressman John Lewis,” he asked Evangelist Alveda C. King, “if she hopes Mr. Trump will be a pro-life president.”
Evangelist King graciously responded as follows:
‘I pray that all polar opposites learn to Agape Love, live and work together as brothers and sisters—or perish as fools. While I voted for Mr. Trump, my confidence remains in God, for life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Prayers for President-elect Trump, Congressman Lewis, and everyone including leaders.’
Obviously Evangelist King believes Mr. Trump will be a legitimate president.
Hundreds of Prayer Warriors In Washington DC to provide prayer shield for Donald Trump
Like angels from heaven, hundreds of “prayer warriors” have descended on Washington D.C. to undertake a crucial mission: protect U.S. President-elect Donald Trump by building a “prayer shield” around him ahead of his Jan. 20 inauguration.
Among these prayer warriors are the members of a new group called POTUS Shield (as in President of the United States) who gathered inside the National Press Club on Thursday, CBN News reported.
Pastor Eric Majette from Virginia Beach, Virginia said POTUS Shield is composed of pastors from all over America.
“We’re actually a prayer group. We pray for leaders across our nation — a group of pastors that come together to pray for our nation and our leaders, particularly the new administration,” he said.
Speaking at the gathering, Alveda King, the niece of famed civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the director of Civil Rights for the Unborn, said they are counting on God to bring sweeping positive changes to America.
“We’re really not looking for Mr. Trump or any human to change America, but we know God can and will do it,” she said. ChristianityToday
I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.
1 Timothy 2:1-2
Alveda King: There’s a beautiful scripture in First Timothy chapter two which says essentially, Pray for those who are in authority, for our leaders, that we can have a peaceful life.
I will be praying for President-elect Trump, his Cabinet and his Administration; also, for our State Governors, the Congress, Supreme Court Justices and all leaders in the political arena. In lifting up our community and church leaders, I pray God will be the one we look to and depend on in the days ahead. CP
