As Donald J. Trump was sworn in and became the 45th President of the United States all of Morningside paused or at the very least, continued to work while peaking at the television, taking in the events. It has been a long road to get here and on election night we watched together as the impossible became possible. So many of our guests on The Jim Bakker Show had prophesied a Trump Presidency. This election was so important. After all, we have experienced our values and Christian faith attacked time and again over the last years. But God’s hand guided this election and we are watching the miracle come to fruition.
We are here, in our offices, listening to our new President tell us not to fear because “We are protected by God”. When that was spoken the cheers could be heard echoing across the building. It is such a relief to hear the leader of our country acknowledge God’s role here in the United States of America!
Pastor Jim and Lori are there, live and in person, at the inauguration. Much to their surprise, they were invited to attend. After great discussion, Pastor Jim decided that this was something that was very important and that he and Lori should participate. You, our viewers and supporters of this ministry worked incredibly hard during this election. You prayed with Pastor, you listened to the facts that the entire staff worked diligently to collect. You heard the teachers and prophets and you not only went out and voted, you encouraged others to do so! When President Elect Trump called Pastor a few weeks after the election, he called to thank YOU! It was for this reason that the Bakkers decided it was important to represent all of us as our country looks to a new hope in leadership.
Yesterday, Pastor Jim and Lori attended the Washington, DC Prayer Service, hosted by Jim Garlow. There, they prayed for our nation, for our Congress, and for our President. Many of those who led prayer are friends of our ministry; Rabbi Jonathan Cahn, Alveda King, Marcus Lamb and David Barton were among many who prayed with the attendees.
This morning Jim and Lori attended the Presidential Inauguration Prayer Breakfast at the Trump Hotel in Washington D.C.. This breakfast was incredibly special as Rabbi Jonathan Cahn was asked to speak. His calm, loving presence always stirs the Holy Spirit. Thousands of Christian leaders are in Washington D.C. to anoint the path that our new President will walk with praise to our Lord.
Tonight Jim and Lori will be attending one of the three inaugural Balls to celebrate! We know this will be a remarkable experience and we are so eager to hear all about this amazing time in history seen from their perspective!
Sharing in many of these events has been Dr. Lance Wallnau who is scheduled to appear next week, Wednesday, January 25th on Grace Street at Morningside. We look forward to hearing all about the inaugural events and the coming together of Christian leadership as President Trump took office. We hope you can join us, but if you are unable to be here for taping please look for these inspirational shows on your local station very soon!
Please continue to join us in prayer for our new President! God Bless America!
