Faith Leaders Pray Over Donald Trump in Iowa

A group of faith leaders in Iowa prayer over former President Donald Trump this weekend before delivering a speech to supporters.

Video posted to social media showed a dozen or so Iowa faith leaders with their hands on Trump while one led the group in prayer.

“The gates of hell will not prevail against him. We speak this over him,” the leader prayed. “Lord, I pray for protection over him; I pray for protection over his family.”

He also prayed, “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.”

Earlier last month, more than 150 faith leaders in the state endorsed the former president.

“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,” said Pastor Dan McCoy, Senior Pastor at First Baptist Church.

“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,” McCoy continued.
