Faith leaders pray over Trump during Iowa campaign stop

 December 5, 2023

Former President Donald Trump stopped in Iowa over the weekend and received quite the blessing from a group of faith leaders.

According to Breitbart, the faith leaders prayed powerfully over the former president as he continues to battle forces that want nothing but the worst for him and his family.

Trump has received numerous endorsements from various faith leaders in Iowa -- over 150 -- in his quest to capture the White House in the 2024 election. A group of over a dozen of them prayed for Trump before he gave remarks at a Cedar Rapids campaign stop.

"The gates of hell will not prevail against him. We speak this over him. Lord, I pray for protection over him; I pray for protection over his family," one of the faith leaders said as they laid hands on the former president.

They added, "All the weapons formed against him will not prosper, and lord, they will come to nothing, and the traps that have been laid against him."

In November, Trump received over 150 endorsements from faith leaders in the state, and that number is on the verge of doubling in an announcement this week that included many more in the state.

In the wake of the group of 150 endorsements from Iowa faith leaders, the Trump campaign posted a touching messaged from Pastor Dan McCoy, senior pastor at First Baptist Church in Urbandale.

"The overwhelming support from Iowa’s faith leaders is a clear indication of President Trump’s unwavering commitment to the principles and values that are important to people of faith," McCoy said.

He added, "This announcement is not just a number; it’s a powerful message that faith communities trust President Trump to lead our nation forward with integrity and moral clarity."

The video of the faith leaders praying for the former president garnered positive feedback from social media users.

"God bless and protect president Trump from all that is evil," one X user wrote.

Another X user wrote, "God bless the true commander in chief."

Trump continues to dominate the primary polls both nationally and on a state level.
