Paula White Cain Joins White House Staff

Paula White Cain is reportedly joining White House staff, according to The New York Times.

Cain has served as President Donald Trump's spiritual adviser, and their relationship reaches back years before he ran for president.

Cain will now officially work as adviser to the Trump administration's Faith and Opportunity Initiative, which works to give a voice to faith communities in government programs, reports say. Trump established the initiative last year by executive order with the goal of furthering causes important to religious communities, such as religious freedom and helping the poor.

At Trump's re-election rally in Orlando, Florida, earlier this year, Cain offered the introductory prayer.

"I pray for the Spirit of the Lord to rest upon our president, and let Your favor cause his horn, his power to be exalted according to Psalm chapter 89 verse 17."

Cain then prophesied that God has raised up Trump for such a time as this.

"I deploy the hand of God to work for him," Cain said. "In the name of Jesus, I secure his calling, I secure his purpose, I secure his family and we secure victory in the name which is above every name."

Cain has known Trump since 2002. Her role in Trump's life started when he unexpectedly called her because he saw her preaching on TV and became interested in what she was sharing.

She tells Charisma Media CEO Stephen Strang that ministering as Trump's personal pastor has given her many opportunities to impact Trump for God's glory.

"I don't think I will ever understand the sovereignty of God, but I do know that this was a God assignment," she says.
