President Donald Trump prayed for those affected by the Virginia Beach shooting while attending a Sunday service at a Virginia church.

As IJR News reported, 12 were killed in Virginia Beach in what was the deadliest mass shooting this year. After spending the morning at a golf club, Trump showed up at the McLean Bible Church to pray for the city.

“President Donald J. Trump is visiting McLean Bible Church in Vienna, VA, to visit with the Pastor and pray for the victims and community of Virginia Beach,” White House Deputy Spokesman Judd Deere said in a statement.

Pastor David Platt prayed for the president, calling for people to also pray for him often.

Watch:

“We don’t want to do that just on this Sunday,” Platt said. “We want to do that continually, day in and day out. So I want to ask us to bow our heads together now and pray for our president.”

“We know we need your mercy. We need your grace. We need your help. We need your wisdom in our country. And so we stand right now on behalf of our president, and we pray for your grace and your mercy and your wisdom upon him.”

The time of prayer was in response to multiple Christian leaders calling for a day of prayer for Trump. Franklin Graham posted on Facebook about his concerns with the criticism the president is facing.

Along with 250+ Christian leaders, I am asking followers of Christ across our nation to set aside next Sunday, June 2,…

“President Trump’s enemies continue to try everything to destroy him, his family, and the presidency. In the history of our country, no president has been attacked as he has. I believe the only hope for him, and this nation, is God,” wrote Graham.

He also pointed out that he hoped to encourage the president with the day of prayer.

“This is a critical time for America. We’re on the edge of a precipice,” said Graham. “Time is short. We need to pray for God to intervene. We need to ask God to protect, strengthen, encourage, and guide the President.”

I pray for Donald Trump that he will have a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ & that he will have an intimate relationship with the Lord. This was my prayer for Hitler when I was growing up. I ask you kindly to not call people like me “enemies” who are trying to destroy the president. Many of us have a deep concern for the president’s soul & spirit. Do you???
