Martin Luther King Jr’s niece leads prayer against abortion at Trump rally
PHOENIX, Arizona, August 24, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — Before President Trump blasted the mainstream media during an event in Arizona on Tuesday, pro-life activist Dr. Alveda King took the stage to ask God for forgiveness for abortion and euthanasia, among other sins.
King’s remarks serve as a clear reminder that the Trump administration is taking the complete opposite approach toward God and the killing of the innocent than his predecessor and the Democratic Party.
“Dear Heavenly Father, in the Name of Jesus, by the power of Your Holy Spirit we come; thanking you for your love, mercy and grace; asking that Your mercy temper the judgment we surely deserve,” King began.
“We pray in deep and sincere repentance asking for Your forgiveness of our sins,” she added.
“We have slaughtered our weakest in the womb, the poor, the elderly and infirm in the name of reproductive rights and social justice. We have embraced inhumanity to humankind in the name of humanism. In constructing and destroying man-made statues in the name of memorials, we have worshipped idols, and are reaping the bitter grapes of wrath today. Oh Lord, forgive us.”
She then begged for God’s assistance. “Fan the flames of revival. Today we pray for our leaders, that they will walk in Your ways; accepting the wisdom and Godly counsel of Your Word.”
Dr. King was followed by Reverend Franklin Graham, a staunch opponent of abortion and the LGBT agenda.
In his prayer, Graham observed that America is broken spiritually and adrift morally, “following whatever direction the wind of popular culture blows, with no regard for your Word.”
“We pray that you’ll heal our land.”
Reverend Graham also said America’s sins of pride, sexual immorality, and self-indulgence have “paralyzed” it, resulting in a country that seems to have forgotten right from wrong.
