Leaders of a California church have come to the decision to stop praying for the president of the United States by name, because they say “Donald Trump” is a “trauma trigger” for some parishioners.
Mike Kinman, the rector of All Saints Episcopal Church in Pasadena, said in a Jan. 6 open letter that the church is removing the names of all leaders from its prayers as a compromise to fulfill their duties as Episcopalians while also protecting the “vulnerable among us in this hour.”
“As Episcopalians, we pray for our leaders. It’s one of those things we do,” Mr. Kinman wrote. “If you come to All Saints this Sunday, you’ll notice that we have removed the proper names from our prayers for those in authority. Whereas before we prayed for ‘Barack, our president,’ we are now praying for ‘our president, our president-elect, and all others in authority.’ This practice will continue for at least the near future.
“We are in a unique situation in my lifetime where we have a president elect whose name is literally a trauma trigger to some people — particularly women and people who, because of his words and actions, he represents an active danger to health and safety,” he wrote.
“We can agree that Jesus loves Donald Trump and that we all should pray for him,”
That's okay. I believe most of them, in that church, don't really have any connection to Yeshua anyways and should spend time trying to get a real relationship with Him and pray for their own salvation. Trump has more than enough Christians, who are connected to Yeshua, to pray for him and sustain him during this time of tribulation.
We the true Church who are the body of Christ, which is every individual who has faith, trust, hope, belief in the Lord God, Jesus Christ, Holy Spirit, are standing with our new President Donald Trump. The Lord called me to stand and pray our new President 5 years ago, I knew he was going to be our new President, despite all of the evil that was thrown at him when he finally decided to run. So, let California church do their do. They are not a true church. They are just using the name of Church to cover up, but now they have exposed themselves for who they truly are. We the People of America stand with and pray for our President Donald Trump
Amen - -YSIC
I think they had better start PRAYING for their Liberal State that is in big Do Do. And you
