President Donald Trump made history on Monday when he became the first sitting U.S. president to pray and leave a note at the Western Wall in Jerusalem. Afterward, Trump reportedly revealed the contents of his prayer.

According to a quote attributed to Trump and tweeted by Johnnie Moore, a well-known Christian author who is on Trump’s evangelical advisory board, the commander-in-chief sought God’s wisdom while at the wall, the Christian Post reported.

“I visited the Western Wall, & marveled at the monument to God’s presence,” Moore quoted Trump. “My hand upon the wall and to pray…for wisdom from God.”


Trump, who wore a black yarmulke as he visited the revered religious site, put his hand on the wall for a few moments before placing a note deep inside the cracks — a practice that visitors to the wall are known to partake in.

These notes are routinely collected and buried at the Mount of Olives cemetery, NBC News reported.

As Faithwire previously reported, Trump had sent a handwritten note to Israel during the 2016 campaign, asking that it be placed at the Western Wall.
