Nancy Pelosi at Prayer

As the Speaker of the House explains, “I pray for the president all the time.” Here’s what she might say.

Our Heavenly Father, your humble servant, Nancy Pelosi, thanks You for allowing me to be elected to Congress and against all odds to become Speaker of the House. In that powerful role, I approach your Throne of Grace, as I do all the time, to pray for our president, Donald Trump.

Our Father, help the president of the United States as he faces the impeachment proceedings your servant Nancy has just ordered to proceed. Father, help him get through the hearings held by my Democrat colleague Jerrold Nadler of the House Judiciary Committee.  

Please help all the witnesses tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. Help Chairman Nadler to expose any falsehoods for what they are. 

Thank you, our Father, for helping our president get through the hearings held by my colleague Adam Schiff of the House Intelligence Committee. Forgive Adam, our Father, for making up a statement by the president that wasn’t true, and for blocking questions and witnesses requested by Republicans on the committee. Make your everlasting mercy known to all parties, and make the truth prevail.

Heavenly Father, help President Trump as he confronts hostile regimes such as North Korea, China, and Iran. Guide our president in the ways of wisdom and peace. 

Heavenly Father, help President Trump keep us safe from terrorist attacks at home and abroad. Help him rid our country of violent MS-13 gang members. Help him build the wall that will keep criminals and terrorists out of our country. Help him keep out the dangerous narcotics that are claiming the lives of so many of our young people. 

Thank you, Heavenly Father, for what President Trump has done for the American economy. Help him, I pray, to keep the economy strong, so more of our people can get the jobs they need to provide for their families. 

Merciful Father, forgive President Trump for his misguided tweets and his past indiscretions. I pray that you keep the president, First Lady Melania, and the rest of his family safe from harm. And forgive all those who express hatred toward President Trump and his family. May they instead have a heart full of love, as You taught me since childhood.  

Thank you, merciful Father, for hearing the prayer of your humble servant. In Nomine Patris et Filii et Spiritus Sancti. Amen.
