‘Prosperity’ Preachers Kenneth Copeland, Paula White Laying Hands on Donald Trump for Presidency

By Heather Clark | christiannews.net

NEW YORK — What do Kenneth Copeland, Paula White, Jan Crouch, Dr. David Jeremiah and Robert Jeffress all have in common? A video has surfaced online showing the men and women, along with others, laying hands on Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump this week and praying for his potential presidency.

DonaldTrumpTelevangelists.jpgAccording to reports, an estimated three dozen spiritual leaders from across America met with Trump for over two hours at his Trump Towers on Monday, providing advice. Those in attendance included a number of nationally-recognized televangelists and prosperity preachers, including the aforementioned Copeland, Crouch and White, as well as TBN regulars Jentezen Franklin, Steve Munsey and Clarence McClendon.

The meeting concluded as many of those gathered laid hands on Trump and prayed for God’s wisdom and favor on the candidate—the last few moments of which was captured on camera. He was flanked by White on one side and Jeffress on the other.

“Father, we just secure him right now by the blood of Jesus. We thank you that no weapon formed against him will be able to prosper and any tongue that rises against him will be condemned according to the word of God,” White, who leads New Destiny Christian Center in Florida, prayed as she touched his arm. “Even as we lay hands on him right now, let Your hand be laid upon him. Let him have a greater encounter with You, a greater encounter with the spirit of God.”

“All the days of his life, let him live well,” she continued. “I secure him. I secure his children. I secure his calling and his mantle.”

Kenneth Copeland, who leads Kenneth Copeland Ministries in Texas and has come under criticism for his health and wealth teaching, asked for wisdom for the candidate.

“[W]e ask you today to give this man your wisdom, boldly. Make sure and certain that he hears You. Manifest Yourself to him,” he prayed. “And we thank You and praise You for a bold man, a strong man and an obedient man.”

Following Copeland, Kirt Schneider of Jews for Jesus laid his hand on Trump’s forehead and prayed the Abrahamic blessing over the Republican presidential candidate.

“Donald Trump, the Lord bless you and keep you. The Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you. The Lord lift you up with His countenance and give you His peace,” he declared.

14437161724558_700David Jeremiah, pastor of Shadow Mountain Community Church in El Cajon, California also participated in the prayers, asking that the next president “will help us economically and spiritually, and in every way.”

“So today we pray for Donald Trump,” he said, as the others in the room joined in agreement. “We pray for his family. We pray for his associates. We pray that what he has heard today from those who have spoken into his life, he will consider.”

“Lord, whatever it is that You are going to do to bring around him the right people as he moves forward in this campaign, we ask you to give him direction and give him hope,” Jeremiah continued. “And Lord, thank you for allowing us to be here for this special moment. Perhaps we’ll look back on this day and remember that we stood together and we prayed for the next president of the United States.”

But not everyone is happy to hear about the meeting. Russell Moore, the president of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention, said that he was concerned that out of all of Christianity, billionaire Trump seems to be attracted to prosperity preachers.

“The people that Trump has so far identified as his evangelical outreach are mostly prosperity gospel types, which are considered by mainstream evangelicals to be heretics,” he told Politico.

“Trump seems to be positioning himself as a secular version of the health-and-wealth televangelists,” Moore continued. “What Donald Trump is doing in terms of promises for the future is very similar to what’s going on among these prosperity gospel hawkers.”

    Well well, it was bound to happen, the laying on of hands. They did it not them but the blk pastors laid hands on Obama, sharing I on his sins. 1 Timothy 5:22 Di not lay hands on anyone hastily, nor share in other people’s sins keep yourself pure. Donald Trump said he has never asked for forgiveness from God for his sins. So it’s seems he feels he is in need of a savior. I liked dr Jeffers and David Jeremiah. But when they joined in with that foolishness. It made me rethink it all. This is not my home I’m just passing through. In the world but not of it. It’s very sad that many Christians have a form of godliness but deny His power. Psalm 103 1,2 Nless the lord , O my soul:And all that is within me. Bless the Lord , O my soul, And forget not His benefits.

    I don’t get it with the admiration the masses for Trump. This fella brought a prop to the religious summit last week in D.C., a bible. Does the meaning of its contents hold a purpose in his life? And these spiritual actors laying hands and annointing him to be the next president is shame. He knows how to raise big bucks and so they. All in the same camp they are.

    Donald Trump reminds of the song by James Brown; Talking Loud and Saying Nothing.

      Dianna, Are you seriously asking this question? With all of the mess that Trump has been saying and all that he stands for, are you serious?? I mean, do we even know that this man is a Christian? SMH big time on this one!!

  3. Darla

    Please forgive me Exministries, but I am so sick and tired of hearing professed Christians continuously asking these dumb questions when it comes to false teachers/preachers that are in cahoots with the world. Praying for an unsaved man that clearly does not serve our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ need no explanation! You can’t mix politics and Christianity! SMH

  4. Chris

    As I’m reading this my face looks as if I’m smelling something that horribly stinks. And this crap reeks!!!! If anything, they need to be praying for this man’s salvation. I pray that he gets saved and then go sit down somewhere…smh. Theses “pastors” and “ministries” can’t be serious. No conviction or discernment at all. Perfect description DUMBinioism!!!!!

  5. Molly

    God doesn’t bless mess…….he SAVES it, but he doesn’t bless it
    seems like all that was going on here was, birds of a feather flocking together. This group here, they are attracted to Trump because he is a high profile symbol of what they hold most dear – MONEY. They gravitate toward him like moths to a flame

  6. Cathy

    When I read the prayers, they seemed very generic to me. Dr Jeremiah is not a prosperity preacher; the others I don’t know about. If Donald Trump called in preachers to ask their advice & they pray for him, I say Amen to that!We are all called to pray for our leaders. Since he is in the lead in the Republican race, I hope he is open to prayer. Was it a publicity stunt? Perhaps,but God can use anything- maybe he will be given spiritual wisdom as a result of their prayer.

  7. Paula

    Was Mr. Trump told about the gospel of Jesus Christ? Was he encouraged to accept Jesus Christ into his life? Was he urged to repent of his many many sins? Was he directed to the cross? Was it explained that Jesus came to die for his sins so that he might have eternal life? Was he told about the love of the Father? Was he told that should he die tomorrow without Christ he would spend eternity in hell? Was he urged to seek the forgiveness of God and to cry out for His mercy? Did they pray that God would reveal Himself to Mr. Trump so that he would come face to face with the truth about who he is and who God is? Does he know that his millions will not earn him a place in God’s Kingdom? Did they declare that Mr. Trump would have an encounter with God that would change his life forever? So many questions…no answers.

    So even these preachers don’t know that the elections are a scam?
    On so many levels these men are proving not to be with Christ.

    This is scary because this is the same thing that a lot of black people which included pastors, politicians and other dignitaries did for Obama.

  10. RS

    In the 2012 Presidential race, it was reported millions of Christians did not vote because they would not support Mitt Romney and this nation has suffered a second Obama term.

    So now we have Donald Trump as the front runner. I doubt if he’ll get the Republican, but I’d rather see Trump as president than Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, or the undeclared candidate, Joe Biden!

    There is no perfect candidate and never will be. I would have rather seen Romney running for a second term in 2016 than this “community organizer/junior senator” throwing Israel under the bus for the few months he has left in office!

    Talk about the “Spirit of DUMBinioism”.

  11. Ruling Ellder

    Black preachers did the same thing for Obama. He deceived them by declaring that he was a Christian. Trump is not doing that. The individuals that are praying for him are doing nothing wrong. Trump is their choice for President, and if they choose to pray for him that is their right. Obama has taken us back to the day’s of Sodom and Gomorrah.

    1. Dixnote7

      Amen, Brother. Right up front he is allowing his “nay” to be “nay,” and his “yea” to be “yea.” I do not feel later on down the election trail his base have to worry that he “evolved” on an issue.
