We reported earlier this week that a group of Trump-supporting dominionists has launched a POTUS Shield project to protect Trump and his presidency from his enemies. They’ve now posted video from last week’s prayer gathering at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C. In addition to prayers of gratitude for Trump’s “anointing” and his having “surrounded himself with evangelical people” and “magnified Christianity,” the group prayed individually for each member of the Trump family, as someone came forward to act as a sort of Hollywood-style stand-in for each of them.
It went unspoken as the group prayed for God to use Trump to renew America as a Christian nation that Trump’s daughter Ivanka is not Christian, but a convert to Judaism. That didn’t stop Cindy Jacobs from praying that “Yeshua”—a Hebrew form of Jesus—“will be very close to her and that she will know Him in an intimate way.”
Lance Wallnau, who had repeatedly declared that Trump was anointed by God, prayed for Donald Jr., declaring that God would give him a personal heads-up—“a word of knowledge ahead of time”—when the media is trying to trip up or embarrass the family. Wallnau has said Trump can help conservative Christians take back the “seven mountains” of cultural influence from Satan.
Frank Amedia, who served the Trump campaign as a voluntary “liaison for Christian policy,” prayed for Eric, saying that he too has “an anointing on him” and that Eric’s “humility for you is already beyond natural.” Amedia prayed that God would “bless his seed and the seed of his seed.”
Leigh Valentine, a beauty-industry entrepreneur associated with John Hagee’s Christians United for Israel, thanked God for “the anointing” he had placed on Melania to walk alongside her husband. The “wisdom of God”, she said, will be upon Melania, who will “astound the women of her nation.”
Mark Gonzales prayed that young Barron would be given wisdom beyond his years and asked that God protect his heart when he sees “evil” being “launched at his family.”
Even the oft-ignored Tiffany also had a prayer warrior, identified on the video chyron as Maria Asela Bramnick, who warned Satan that angels were protecting her. It appears that was Asela Maria Bramnick, who is married to Mario Bramnick, a leader of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference.
Clarence McClendon, a Los Angeles-based preacher who said in post-election Twitter messages to “the Prophetic Community” that the election was “supernatural” and a “Re-Set” for the country, prayed for Mike Pence has his wife, saying that God had told him Pence was “a covenant man.” Pence, he said, is “malleable and pliable” in God’s hand, and prayed that Pence would speak wisdom into Trump’s ears. McClendon decreed that the nation will be sustained by God “because you have a covenant man second in command.”
Trump himself was prayed for by a several people. Gonzalez asked that God tell Trump what to say so that he will “speak literally words from heaven” while the world listens. Amedia pledged that the group would be there for Trump in good times and bad, saying repeatedly, “We are your POTUS Shield.”
