Perhaps looking to improve the Republican Party’s woeful record in attracting African-Americans and other minority voters, Republican 2016 presidential frontrunner Donald Trump accepted an earnest prayer from conservative Evangelical Pastor David Jeremiah on Monday that God will send him a “strong African-American” to help him with the black vote.

Jeremiah who is pastor of Shadow Mountain Community Church, a megachurch in El Cajon, California, was among a group of about 40 religious leaders including well known TV personalities Paula White, Jentezen Franklin, Steve Munsey and Clarence McClendon who met with the billionaire real estate mogul at his office in New York City then laid hands on him in prayer for his success in the presidential race. Southern Baptist megachurch Pastor Robert Jeffress, of First Baptist Dallas, can be seen to Trump’s left.

A video clip from the meeting posted to YouTube Wednesday (see below), shows Trump receiving those prayers with both his hands gripped firmly on what appears to be a Bible.

“Today we pray for Donald Trump. We pray for his family. We pray for his associates. We pray that what he has heard today from those who have spoken into his life, he will consider. Lord I pray you will bring into his life a strong African-American who can stand with him and represent that community so that his voice can be heard even in a stronger way there,” declared Jeremiah.

Shortly before making that request of God he noted that Trump “not only says what he believes but is willing to put himself in jeopardy for what he believes and will help us economically and spiritually in every way in this nation.”

After asking God to give Trump hope and direction, he noted, “Lord thank you for allowing us to be here for this special moment. Perhaps we’ll look back on this day and remember that we stood together and we prayed over the next president of the United States.”

On hearing that Trump is shown in the video quietly tapping Jeremiah’s hand planted on his shoulder in apparent approval.

After Jeremiah, another pastor, standing behind Trump and not visible, prayed, “Father you said in Your Word, any man that lacks wisdom, let him ask of God ….”
