‘God Will Lead Us Through’ the Valley, Trump Says As He Declares National Day of Prayer
United States President Donald Trump

United States President Donald J. Trump urged Americans in a National Day of Prayer proclamation Thursday to “come together and pray” that the nation develops “even greater faith” in God’s “divine providence” during the coronavirus pandemic. 

Trump, in his annual National Day of Prayer proclamation, quoted Presidents Washington, Lincoln and Reagan and noted that “from our earliest days, our dependence upon God has brought us to seek His divine counsel and unfailing wisdom.” 

Faith Is More Powerful Than Government And Nothing Is More Powerful Than God – Trump

“Today, as much as ever, our prayerful tradition continues as our Nation combats the coronavirus,” the proclamation reads. “During the past weeks and months, our heads have bowed at places outside of our typical houses of worship, whispering in silent solitude for God to renew our spirit and carry us through unforeseen and seemingly unbearable hardships. 

“Even though we have been unable to gather together in fellowship with our church families, we are still connected through prayer and the calming reassurance that God will lead us through life’s many valleys.”

In the midst of “these trying and unprecedented times,” Americans “are reminded that just as those before us turned to God in their darkest hours, so must we seek His wisdom, strength, and healing hand,” the proclamation reads.

“We pray that He comforts those who have lost loved ones, heals those who are sick, strengthens those on the front lines, and reassures all Americans that through trust in Him, we can overcome all obstacles,” it reads. “May we never forget that prayer guides and empowers our Nation and that all things are possible with God. In times of prosperity, strife, peace, and war, Americans lean on His infinite love, grace, and understanding. Today, on this National Day of Prayer, let us come together and pray to the Almighty that through overcoming this coronavirus pandemic, we develop even greater faith in His divine providence.”

The proclamation further says that “prayer guides and strengthens our Nation.” 

“[W]e express, with humility and gratitude, our ‘firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence,’” the proclamation says. “As one Nation under God, we share a legacy of faith that sustains and inspires us and a heritage of religious liberty. Today, we join together and lift up our hearts, remembering the words of 1 John 5:14 that tell us when ‘we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.’”

Below is the full text of the proclamation:

On this National Day of Prayer, Americans reaffirm that prayer guides and strengthens our Nation, and we express, with humility and gratitude, our “firm reliance on the protection of divine Providence.”  As one Nation under God, we share a legacy of faith that sustains and inspires us and a heritage of religious liberty.  Today, we join together and lift up our hearts, remembering the words of 1 John 5:14 that tell us when “we ask anything according to His will, He hears us.”

From our earliest days, our dependence upon God has brought us to seek His divine counsel and unfailing wisdom.  Our leaders have often encouraged their fellow citizens to seek wisdom from God and have recognized God’s power to lead our Nation ahead to brighter days.  When the prospects for our independence seemed bleak, General George Washington proclaimed a national day of “fasting, humiliation and prayer, humbly to supplicate the mercy of Almighty God.”  Following the devastating destruction of the Civil War, President Lincoln delivered his second inaugural address and invoked the power of prayer to “bind up the nation’s wounds.”  And more than 100 years later, President Reagan noted our long reliance on prayer throughout our history, writing that “through the storms of revolution, Civil War, and the great world wars as well as during times of disillusionment and disarray, the Nation has turned to God in prayer for deliverance.”
