A group of evangelical leaders prayed over President Donald Trump in the Oval Office, with Vice President Mike Pence in attendance as well.
Following a meeting hosted by the Office of Public Liaison on Monday, the evangelical leaders met with President Trump and administration officials in the Oval Office.
Johnnie Moore, president of the KAIROS Company and an attendee of the prayer meeting, snapped a photo of the laying of hands on Trump that is garnering immense attention on social media.
In a statement emailed to The Christian Post, Moore described the event as “a very special moment but it was also not an unusual one.”
“Various ones of us have prayed with him many times and have been praying for him for a long time … We believe we are a praying nation, and we begin by praying for our leaders,” stated Moore.
“As you know, most evangelicals believe it’s a sacred responsibility to pray for the president, and this is very much in our tradition as Americans who once took — and sometimes still do take — this responsibility seriously.”

Johnnie Moore also shared a photo of President Trump talking to evangelical leaders in the Oval Office.
Along with Moore, Paula White and former Southern Baptist Convention president Ronnie Floyd are present.
Richard Land, president of Southern Evangelical Seminary, appears to be in the photo of leaders laying hands on Trump.
Jack Graham, pastor of Prestonwood Baptist Church in Dallas, tweeted his support for the gathering, saying, “Please join us in covering POTUS and VPOTUS with prayer,” in response to Johnnie Moore’s photo. It is not clear whether he was at the White House.
