National Prayer Breakfast Unites Business, Religious, & Political Leaders From Over 140 Countries

President Trump Spoke at 68th Annual National Prayer Breakfast. The 68th annual National Prayer Breakfast was held in Washington, DC on Thursday, Feb. 6, and President Donald Trump spoke at this morning’s main event. "All of us here today reaffirm these timeless truths: Faith keeps us free. Prayer makes us strong. And God alone is the author of life and the giver of grace," he said.


President Trump spoke less than 24 hours after he was acquitted by the Senate of the impeachment charges brought to him by the Democrat-controlled House of Representatives. Trump began by holding up copies of two newspapers with headlines that read "Acquitted!" as he made his way to the podium. He then opened his speech by taking shots at "very dishonest and corrupt" people.

More than 3,500 people were invited to attend this year’s breakfast – among them elected officials as well as religious and political leaders from both parties, and dignitaries from other countries, like Vice President-elect Lai Ching-te of Taiwan.

The event is hosted by members of the United States Congress and is organized by The Fellowship Foundation, a nonprofit religious organization designed to bring together political, religious and business leaders.

This is the second time Trump has spoken at the breakfast.

The National Prayer Breakfast is actually an all-day series of meetings and luncheons designed to build relationships. Every president since Dwight D. Eisenhower has addressed the prayer breakfast’s audience.

It’s wonderful to be with the thousands of religious believers for the 68th annual National Prayer Breakfast. I also want to welcome foreign dignitaries from more than 140 countries.

On Tuesday, I addressed Congress on the state of the Union and the great American comeback. Our country has never done better than it is doing right now. Our economy is the strongest it has ever been. And for those of you that are interested in stocks, it looks like the stock market will be way up again today.

According to the latest Gallup poll that just came out a little while ago, a few minutes ago, American satisfaction is at the highest level ever recorded. Can you imagine? And that’s from Gallup — no friend of mine. (Applause.) Ninety percent of Americans say they are satisfied with their personal lives. How about that? Isn’t that something? Just came out today. (Applause.) They must have known I was going to be here. (Laughter.)

In everything we do, we are creating a culture that protects freedom, and that includes religious freedom. (Applause.)

As I said on Tuesday in the House Chamber, "In America, we don’t punish prayer. We don’t tear down crosses. We don’t ban symbols of faith. We don’t muzzle preachers." We don’t muzzle pastors. "In America, we celebrate faith, we cherish religion, we lift our voices in prayer, and we raise our sights to the Glory of God." (Applause.)

So much of the greatness we have achieved, the mysteries we’ve unlocked, and the wonders we’ve built, the challenges we’ve met, and the incredible heights that we’ve reached has come from the faith of our families and the prayers of our people.

Last year, at the United Nations, I was honored to be the first President to host a meeting of religious freedom. It was based all on religious freedom. That was the first meeting of its kind ever held at the United Nations. There I called upon all nations to combat the terrible injustice of religious persecution. And people listened.

Yesterday, our administration launched the International Religious Freedom Alliance, the first-ever alliance devoted to promoting religious liberty. It was something. Really something. (Applause.)

More than 25 countries have already joined our campaign. I want to thank Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, along with Ambassador Sam Brownback, who are both here this morning, for leading this historic initiative. Thank you very much. Thank you, Mike. (Applause.) Thank you.

All of us here today reaffirm these timeless truths: Faith keeps us free. Prayer makes us strong. And God alone is the author of life and the giver of grace. (Applause.)

Through a series of divine interventions, God began calling David into the full-time ministry in 2006. At the time he was a legal service broker and on an ambitious path. Although he had other plans, David started responding to God’s call. He prayed, “Lord, if it isn’t your will I succeed, please don’t allow me to.” Listen to a brief portion of David’s story of how God led him where he is today.
