"'I AM Praying for You.' Those are the Five Words That Never, Ever Fail to Touch My Heart": Trump Tells Prayer Breakfast Attendants America Must Never Stop Asking God for Wisdom

Claire Chretien : Feb 2, 2017  LifeSiteNews

"The quality of our lives is not defined by our material success, but by our spiritual success. I tell you that from somebody that has had material success." – President Donald Trump

(Washington, DC) — [LifeSiteNews] At Thursday morning's National Prayer Breakfast, President Trump said the whole world has a duty to stop the "genocide" of Christians in the Middle East. (Photo Credit: C-SPAN via LifeSiteNews)

He blasted the terrorism that religious minorities face in some parts of the world, said we "must never, ever" stop asking God for wisdom, and declared that America will flourish "when religious liberty can flourish."

"Freedom of religion is a sacred right," President Trump said. He promised that his administration "will do everything in its power to defend and protect religious liberty in our land" and around the world …

Trump said he will "totally destroy" the Johnson Amendment, which threatens churches with the loss of their tax-exempt statuses for expressing certain political opinions. His speech also touched on the importance of caring for veterans, whose "vigilance has kept our liberty alive."

Trump thanked the American people for their prayers, which "have sustained me and inspired me."

Trump said the "five words that never, ever fail to touch my heart" are "I am praying for you." 

"I hear it so often," he said. 

"The quality of our lives is not defined by our material success, but by our spiritual success," he continued. "I tell you that from somebody that has had material success."

Many of the ultra-rich are "very, very miserable and unhappy people," Trump said, while he's noticed the less wealthy who have their families are often happiest.

"Those to me are the successful people," he said.

Trump rejoiced that "one nation under God" is part of the Pledge of Allegiance. He called the reference to God "a great thing because that’s what we are and that is what we will always be and that is what our people want."

"God will always give us solace and strength and comfort," he told the audience of American and foreign politicians and dignitaries.
