The Laying of Hands in the Oval Office


The Daily Mail: This is the moment evangelical leaders laid their hands on Donald Trump’s back as they prayed over him in the Oval Office.

Evangelical pastor Rodney Howard-Browne led a prayer circle alongside his wife Adonica and then shared the image on Facebook.

President Trump and Vice President Mike Pence can be seen closing their eyes and bowing their heads in the solemn moment.

The group were invited to pray with Trump during a meeting with members of the White House’s Office of Public Liaison. more …

Opinion: In 1990, my dad, who had been diagnosed with bone cancer a year earlier, went to see a new doctor. After the examination, the doctor asked my parents if she could pray for them.

My mother, who was a Christian, was delighted. My dad, who was not, agreed and she laid hands on him. Not long after that, I heard that my parents were attending Bible study with the doctor and a group of believers, followed by my dad getting his hurting body into a swimming pool to be baptized.

At the time, I was appalled. I would have told you I was a Christian, but I was not. It would be another 10 years before I placed my faith in Jesus Christ, and that is when the whole account of my dad and that amazing Doctor Cary made sense.

My hope is that because of the laying of hands on Monday, our president becomes a new man.


  1. What a wonderful story, Author. Praise God! Yes, this is what we pray for – for all our leaders, but especially for our President, his family, and his leadership team. Amen!!!
