"Of course pray for everybody... [but] we can't be, again, politically correct and say we pray for all of our leaders, because all of your [political] leaders are selling Christianity down the tubes, selling the evangelicals down the tubes. And it's a very, very bad thing that's happening." — Donald Trump

"Don't pray to be politically correct. Pray to be spiritually correct." — Alveda King

Yesterday, sitting among 1,000 Judeo-Christian apostles, prophets, evangelists, pastors and teachersall spiritual leaders in Americaat a "Conversation with Donald Trump and Ben Carson" emceed by Mike Huckabee, I heard Donald Trump say "pray for everybody" but "don't be politically correct." 

Since the meeting was closed to media reporting, we need to understand that information can only trickle out through the biased perspectives of the attendees, me included.

If we are completely honest, we can agree that the main, number one issue of concern presented to Mr. Trump by the body as a whole was religious liberty. Mr. Trump assured the attendees that protecting religious liberty is a primary concern for him and is at the top of his to do list. 

He further promised to appoint Pro-life Supreme Court justices. He promised that "America will be free to say Merry Christmas" again. He promised economic justice as a means of lessening the bands of racism. He promised safe borders for America. He promised to strengthen our military to protect our nation. He gave God the credit for giving him intelligent children. So sorry you couldn't be there to hear all of this. 

At no time did Mr. Trump advise that Americans need to disobey the Bible. Those words did not come out of his mouth. 

Looking forward, the estimated 1,000 leaders in the room have platforms that impact millions of Americans. Now our challenge is to turn away from railing at each other and the candidates, and truly obey the Bible ourselves. 

Please join me now in praying for Mr. Trump, Mrs. Clinton and all congressional, gubernatorial, state, county and local candidates, that God will, according to Romans 13 and 1 Timothy 2:2, bless us so that America can have peace and prosperity.
