We had a great day @WhiteHouse with faith leaders. We talked & prayed with President @realDonaldTrump in the Roosevelt Room. I’m thankful that we are given the opportunity to discuss important policy issues and always the President ask us to lay hands on him and pray.

Many have insisted that it is always a good idea to pray for the president.
On that topic, see:

and (andyrowell.net/andy_rowell/20…) (andyrowell.net/andy_rowell/20…)

But note Robert Jeffress says the purpose is to lobby evangelicals.
"The primary purpose of the informal meeting with faith leaders Tuesday was for the President to brief faith leaders on the continuing, remarkable accomplishments of this administration" (www1.cbn.com/cbnnews/us/201…)

Samuel Rodriguez has said in the past that he prizes access to power.

"You don't want to write off access to a president." "A balance ... never sacrifice truth on the altar of expediency but" says Samuel Rodriguez. / The ends justify the means is a good way to gain the whole world and lose your soul. https://twitter.com/NewsHour/status/992237378134622209

It looks like there was another meeting of Trump's unofficial evangelical advisory board today at the White House.

the debasement of the religious right political class continues apace

There is no pro-life, pro-family policy absent truth and goodness. To abandon the latter to gain the former is to lose all. https://twitter.com/tperkins/status/1190008986193539074 

Tony Perkins@tperkins
 

Glad to visit with @realDonaldTrump to discuss how this administration is advancing conservative policies. It is clear to me the impeachment is less about the president and more about his pro-life, pro-family policies.

See my post about the August 29, 2019 meeting between Trump and his evangelicals at: (andyrowell.net/andy_rowell/20…)

Johnnie Moore says "impeachment is not about Trump but his agenda. The Democrats want to impeach us [evangelicals]."

This is ignorant. It really is about Trump's behavior. Trump has no coherent agenda. Pence, an evangelical, would become president.

This week on - @JohnnieM shares what evangelical leaders told @realDonaldTrump at WH this week on : "you fight well alone, but you're not gonna have to fight well alone because we're going to be standing right there with you every step of the way"

The Dems relentless crusade to impeach President @realDonaldTrump is really an attempt to “impeach” the traditional faith values of millions of Americans. I’ll discuss with @LouDobbs tonight at 7 and 10pm ET on @FoxBusiness.
