One of the president's faith advisers called a bipartisan prayer for White House infected due to coronavirus.
Two North Texas pastors have reacting to President Donald Trump’s COVID-19 diagnosis eight days after they both spent personal time with the president at the oval office while in Washington D.C. for a prayer march.
Prestonwood Baptist Church Pastor Jack Graham, a friend and faith advisor to the president,lead the oval office prayer on September 26.
Graham said, “He was very excited about that, very pleased about that, and then we just had the opportunity to pray for him as we always do. He welcomes, he invites prayer.”
Trump tested COVID-19 positive five days later.
He said, “Of course, this just is an indicator that this virus is so random in who it impacts, who it affects — infects.”
“I mean it’s just a reminder isn’t it? To pray for all those who are sick,” he added.
Graham tested negative for the virus, before meeting with the president. He said, “I don’t have COVID, let’s just put it that way. And I’m grateful for that and we’re grateful for God’s protection always — but pray for those who do as we pray for our president.”
Gateway Church Senior Pastor Robert Morris joined the faith team at the oval office and said, “But now our president is on the front lines, along with his wife, of that fight, and we certainly do want to lift them up.”
