Video Shows “Prosperity” Preachers Kenneth Copeland, Paula White Laying Hands on Donald Trump for Presidency

Heather Clark of Christian News Network (CNN) asks: What do Kenneth Copeland, Paula White, Jan Crouch, Dr. David Jeremiah and Robert Jeffress all have in common?

But a better question would be: what do high-profile Baptist pastors David Jeremiah and Robert Jeffress have in common with prosperity preachers?  Seeing two pastors who are admired by many Christians praying with the likes of Paula White, Ken Copeland and Jan Crouch, the wife of the late Paul Crouch and co-founder of what some refer to as the Trinity Blasphemy Network, was disappointing to say the least. Many in the Christian community are eager to hear why they agreed to attend such a gathering.

CNN has the full report, including some of the prayers uttered by Word of Faith heretics for real estate mogul and reality TV-star Donald Trump, prayers that are unbiblical and troubling.


A video has surfaced online showing the men and women, along with others, laying hands on Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump this week and praying for his potential presidency.

According to reports, an estimated three dozen spiritual leaders from across America met with Trump for over two hours at his Trump Towers on Monday, providing advice. Those in attendance included a number of nationally-recognized televangelists and prosperity preachers, including the aforementioned Copeland, Crouch and White, as well as TBN regulars Jentezen Franklin, Steve Munsey and Clarence McClendon.

The meeting concluded as many of those gathered laid hands on Trump and prayed for God’s wisdom and favor on the candidate—the last few moments of which was captured on camera. He was flanked by White on one side and Jeffress on the other.

“Father, we just secure him right now by the blood of Jesus. We thank you that no weapon formed against him will be able to prosper and any tongue that rises against him will be condemned according to the word of God,” White, who leads New Destiny Christian Center in Florida, prayed as she touched his arm. “Even as we lay hands on him right now, let Your hand be laid upon him. Let him have a greater encounter with You, a greater encounter with the spirit of God.”

“All the days of his life, let him live well,” she continued. “I secure him. I secure his children. I secure his calling and his mantle.”

Kenneth Copeland, who leads Kenneth Copeland Ministries in Texas and has come under criticism for his health and wealth teaching, asked for wisdom for the candidate.

“[W]e ask you today to give this man your wisdom, boldly. Make sure and certain that he hears You. Manifest Yourself to him,” he prayed. “And we thank You and praise You for a bold man, a strong man and an obedient man.”  Continue the video below

    Yeah..when I heard that Trump had gathered that clan, it really became clear to me that he just might be a spiritual babe. That’s okay. I pray that he grows in the Lord whether he becomes POTUS or not. You never know how God will move.
    Note: FYI…my “pick” is still up in the air. So much more to see first. Patience.

      I saw this….and while it would be great if he truly did receive the Holy Spirit and became a believer, I did not hear testimony….perhaps there was. It will be evident in his works and if there is any fruit.
      I know for a fact that Ted Cruz is a solid Christian and that speaks volumes for me in that our nation has turned so far from God.

        I confess that I actually did not watch. Didn’t feel the need. The picture was enough for me to see red flags. Agree totally about Cruz. He would be the candidate that I most likely identify with. But can he win the Whitehouse from the liberals? I also admire Carson but need to see some research on SDA (hint hint). ?

    I find it sad. I truly feel Trump think this is the right road. It is quite clear Trump doesn’t understand or know “Salvation” I just pray that someone comes his way and explains to him the truth. God does not measure buy money and I think that Trump thinks these guys are right cause they are so rich.

    some of the names in your list have been dead for years. What are you thinking… God uses any one He wants to. He even spoke through a donkey.
