Charisma, a media outlet for conservative Pentecostal Christians, published an “urgent call to prayer” this week. The emergency? “Thousands of witches gathered at midnight Wednesday to cast spells on President Donald Trump as part of a summer solstice ritual.”
The magazine called its prayer warriors to attention in response to online articles about a community of people using the hashtag #MagicResistance:
Dave Kubal, president of Intercessors for America (IFA), previously issued an urgent call to prayer when the resistance launched in February.
Kubal explained about a worldwide call for witches—and those willing to attempt witchcraft for the first time—to cast a spell harming Donald Trump.
According to IFA, the ritual is to be done at the stroke of midnight on waning crescent moon ritual days until Trump leaves office. The summer solstice is considered especially important.
“Whether or not this call for spells pans out and people act on it, we feel compelled, as the body of Christ and intercessors, to come against this evil with immediate and powerful prayer,” the IFA reports.
This isn’t the first such call: back in March, dominionist Lou Engle sounded an “urgent call” for a three-day fast by Christians to break the “unprecedented global summons of witchcraft to curse President Trump, his Cabinet and all of those aligned with a biblical worldview.”
