USA – Worship leaders and Christian artists from around the USA gathered at the White House this week to proclaim the name of Jesus Christ over their country!
Their meeting at the official residence and workplace of President Donald Trump, also aimed at receiving an update on all the faith-based initiatives that have been introduced by the Trump administration.
Key administration officials and faith leaders were present, according to CBN News.
In one clip posted by Christian singer Tauren Wells, a group of worship leaders was seen belting out “What a Beautiful Name” by Hillsong Worship.
What a privilege to declare the name of Jesus in worship and in prayer today at the White House. I was challenged, informed, convicted, & inspired at the #faithbriefing w/ many peers in the CCM industry. The church has a great opportunity to rise with grace & truth in this hour. pic.twitter.com/xgZQiqh6XG

The “Faith Briefing” meeting was organized by Pastor Paula White, the chair of President Trump’s Faith Advisory Board and a pastor from Florida. According to CBN News, the leaders also prayed together.
In May this year, President Trump signed an Executive Order entitled “Establishment of a White House Faith and Opportunity Initiative” in order to enhance religious freedom and freedom of speech in USA.
“Faith is more powerful than government, and nothing is more powerful than God,” Trump said in the Rose Garden at a National Day of Prayer event with religious leaders and White House staff as he signed the order that time.
The executive order repealed Obama administration rules limiting the ability of groups getting federal funds to preach to those they serve. The executive order made it possible for the Trump office to consult with faith leaders regularly, advising the attorney general on ways that the federal government has failed “to comply with protections of federal law for religious liberty.”
“Faith is deeply embedded into the history of our country, the spirit of our founding and the soul of our nation,” Trump said. “We will not allow people of faith to be targeted, bullied or silenced anymore.”
