It’s now being reported that hundreds, if not thousands, of “prayer warriors” have made it to Washington D.C. to set up shop praying for safety and God’s guidance over our next President Donald J. Trump. One of the largest organizations participating in the prayer movement is a group called POTUS Shield. Pretty cool.
The groups will be praying for God’s hand of protection around Donald Trump during the Inauguration especially but also over the course of his entire presidency.

Like angels from heaven, hundreds of “prayer warriors” have descended on Washington D.C. to undertake a crucial mission: protect U.S. President-elect Donald Trump by building a “prayer shield” around him ahead of his Jan. 20 inauguration.
Among these prayer warriors are the members of a new group called POTUS Shield (as in President of the United States) who gathered inside the National Press Club on Thursday, CBN News reported.
“We’re actually a prayer group. We pray for leaders across our nation — a group of pastors come together to pray for our nation and our leaders, particularly the new administration,” he said.
Speaking at the gathering, Alveda King, the niece of famed civil rights leader Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and the director of Civil Rights for the Unborn, said they are counting on God to bring sweeping positive changes to America.
“We’re really not looking for Mr. Trump or any human to change America, but we know God can and will do it,” she said.
Pastor Leon Benjamin from Richmond, Virginia addressed the concerns aired by members of the African-American community who fear that the Trump administration will mean trouble for them.
“We must believe for the best,” Benjamin told CBN News. “It doesn’t matter who is in the White House as long as there is faith that God has not forsaken us and that He has not left us because of a transition of power. That would be dreadful for us as pastors and leaders to say ‘Oh my God, we’re doomed now!’ So we’re very hopeful.”
Other prayer warriors descended on Capitol Hill to pray not only for Trump but also for Ben Carson, the former Republican presidential candidate and Trump’s nominee as Housing and Urban Development Secretary, during his Senate hearing.
