Right-wing pastor Robert Henderson held a series of livestream prayer events recently in which he tearfully begged God to ensure President Donald Trump’s reelection and claimed that the patriotic shirt he wore would cause the Lord remember the United States.
Henderson, who claims to have secured Trump’s 2016 victory by beseeching “the courts of Heaven” and asserts that he has been called by God to serve as Trump’s spiritual running mate in 2020, wore an American flag shirt during the broadcast because he said that he had been commanded by God to do so.
‘God said to me, ‘When you stand before me in this, it causes me to remember the United States of America. It causes me to remember your nation because I have positioned you to represent the culture before me,'” Henderson said. “So that’s why I have this shirt on … because I am standing on behalf of the United States of America and God’s purpose for this nation.”
“I want to ask, Lord, that you would help us tonight,” Henderson later wept, “to stand and to run the race, Lord, with President Donald J. Trump, and to see him reelected, and to see everything moved out of the way that would legally claim a right to deny him the office of the president, Father, for another four years. I’m asking that you would help us to do this. Lord, he can’t do that. He doesn’t even understand that dimension—I know that’s true—but we do, Lord, and so I’m asking you to help us do for him what he can’t do for himself, that you would help us, that you would help us, in our weakness, Lord, that you will help us.”
