President Donald Trump’s rally in Orlando, Florida, opened with a prayer from his spiritual advisor Paula White, who prayed for the president, but also that “demonic networks” be torn down.
White asked that everyone in the audience hold hands as she prayed.
“So right now, let every demonic network that has aligned itself against the purpose, against the calling of President Trump, let it be broken, let it be torn down in the name of Jesus,” she exclaimed.
“I declare that President Trump will overcome every strategy from hell and every strategy from the enemy,” she added later in her prayer.
“I secure his calling, I secure his purpose, I secure his family, and we secure victory in the name which is above every name,” White concluded, “the name of Jesus Christ.”
The president kicked off his re-election campaign at the 20,000 seat Orlando Amway Center. He decried the media during his speech, which inspired the crowd to chant “CNN sucks!”
Paula White has been criticized by some for propagating the “prosperity gospel,” which many Evangelical Christians consider to be heretical. She also gave the convocation at the president’s inauguration in January 2017.
