‘America, a nation sustained by prayer,’ says Trump

U.S. President Donald Trump has paid tributes to Americans who had always prayed for the country, declaring that America is a nation that is sustained by prayer.

Trump said at a ceremony preceding the lying in honour of the Rev. Billy Graham at Capitol Hill that Americans always prayed at every situation.

“Here in this room, we are reminded that America is a nation sustained by prayer.  The painting to my left is of the pilgrims as they embarked for America, holding fast to the Bible and bowing their heads in prayer.

“Along these walls, we see the faces of Americans who prayed as they stood on the Lexington Green, who prayed as they headed west, prayed as they headed into battle, and prayed as they marched for justice, and always marched for victory.

“Around us stand the statues of heroes who led the nation in prayer during the great and difficult times, from Washington to Lincoln to Eisenhower to King.

“And, today, in the centre of this great chamber lies legendary Billy Graham, an ambassador for Christ who reminded the world of the power of prayer and the gift of God’s grace.

“Today we honour him as only three private citizens before him have been so honoured,” the president said.
