David Platt Asks God to Grant Trump “All the Grace He Needs to Govern”

posted on June 6, 2019

Christianity Today‘s Kate Shellnut writes that Southern Baptist Pastor David Platt prayed onstage with Donald Trump at his McLean Bible Church on Sunday after the president stopped by for a surprise visit after golfing. She writes, “David Platt did not publicly sign on to Franklin Graham’s day of prayer for President Donald Trump. He is not a member of his White House faith advisors, he did not endorse him, and he is not known for weighing in on day-to-day political happenings.” Platt later wrote in a letter to his congregation: “Sometimes we find ourselves in situations that we didn’t see coming, and we’re faced with a decision in a moment when we don’t have the liberty of deliberation, so we do our best to glorify God.”
