Tony Perkins Urges Christians to Pray That D.C. Experiences ‘Chaos, Conflict, and Gridlock’

Pray that Washington D.C. experiences “chaos, conflict, and gridlock” under President Joe Biden’s administration, advocates Tony Perkins, the president of the Family Research Council and former chair of the United States Commission on International Religious Freedom (June 2019-2020). Perkins gave his message to Andrew Wommack, Richard Harris, and the viewers of the Truth and Liberty live cast this past Monday. 

Tony Perkins’ Perspective on D.C.

Harris asked Perkins if the Truth and Liberty viewers could do anything to help West Virginia‘s and Arizona’s senators stand their ground against congress removing the filibuster. “This is out of our hands at this point,” Perkins said. “We just need to continue to pray…pray that the Lord would prohibit them from doing this.”

The conservative Christian leader told those watching that “we need God to move on our behalf. We need to repent as a nation of the stuff that’s being pushed through [congress]. Just look what the Biden administration has pushed through…the whole transgender agenda…the issue of abortion.” He called those things President Biden has done “atrocious” and said, “I pray for God’s blessing on Joe Biden and Kamala Harris as they yield themselves to Him.”

Perkins also said, though, that if the president and vice president of the United States choose not to turn to their hearts toward God and “refuse the truth and go against the truth” that he prays that they would be “confused.” He also prays that Washington D.C would experience “conflict” and “gridlock.”

Critics of Perkins’ call to prayer cited 1 Timothy 2:1-4: “I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people—for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. This is good, and pleases God our Savior, who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.”
