COLORADO SPRINGS, Colorado: As we enjoy the final days of Hanukah season and enter into the Christmas season, there are many reasons for prayer. Reasons to pray for the sick, the lost and lonely. However, this moment of reflection is a prayer for the family of President Donald J. Trump. A family who has put aside its old life for one of sacrifice and duty to its country.
A prayer for the Trump Family
Prayers for First Lady Melania Trump who is visiting hospitals rather than New York tea rooms.
A President whose four hours a night sleep regimen allows him the time to Make America great again. A teen-age son, Barron, who has all the perks of wealth and privilege, but who must withstand the dirt and dishonor of the town in which he temporarily dwells. A sister, Tiffany, who completes her studies, staying below the political radar.
The older brothers, Eric and Donald, who are loyal to their father, mother, step-mother, and sister. Who, while their father serves, takes on the family business to free the President to help his country.
A sister Ivanka whose considerable education and cleverness graces her father’s way and so well represents her country and American womanhood. A son in law, Jared, whose closeness to Israel and a job well done is not only in a family by marriage but by deed as well.
A prayer for his White House family
Press secretary Sarah Sanders whose famous father cannot shield her from the slings and arrows of a contemptable town. The chortling nabobs of negativity, the jackals known as the mainstream media.
Aide KellyAnne Conway whose own husband will not honor his family, continually stepping into the spotlight to criticize his wife’s employer publicly. Who seeks to degrade his wife’s long hours of effort in standing by her president.
Prayers for General John Kelly who leaves this latest tour of service, and who stands valiantly by his President and America. Also, prayers for our incoming Chief of Staff, Nick Mulvaney. May his efforts be true on behalf of the President and America.
A prayer for America celebrates Christmas
A country where some 90% of all people celebrate Christmas (Pew Research). This year, the season is more golden with economic strength, family, truth, and honor President Trump is restoring.
Prayers for the children who sit on Santa’s knee oblivious that a faithful and loyal man shepherding their political futures.
A president whose strength fares as well. A man of conviction, who saw the future of a once-great country and sought to change it. A President who is neither sad, isolated nor angry in our majestic white house. A man who wears his scarlet letter proudly, concerned more for his country than his comfort.
Moreover, a wife whose beautiful allee of red trees in her temporary home presages the red allele in Paris, burning and disheartened.
We pray for our first family and for all those whose lives are being destroyed for helping their president complete his mission. For those who have lost their homes and reputations to serve a great country, Merry Christmas to you.
We are praying for all secure in the knowledge that our God is watching over them.
