Here's Why Alveda King Is 'Cheering On' President Trump Through Fervent Prayer
Feb 21, 2017 by Will Maule
The niece of Dr. Martin Luther King, Alveda King, is getting right behind the President of the United States, and believes we are in an age of dangerous spiritual attack and powers of darkness that need to be addressed. So, in all things, we must be in prayer
"For some reason, midweek last week, I turned on the television set to national news before I read my Bible verses for the day," King writes at Charisma. "For the record, I try not to do this because I'm old enough to realize that I need daily heavenly fortification to help me face the problems of the world. But that morning, I overrode my training and daily regiment."
Alveda flicked through a few news channels. "For those moments, while standing before the television as I flipped back and forth between the programs, President Trump was being hammered by hostile media, and he was defending himself," she writes. "As he described how he was still draining the swamp while bringing new jobs back into America, I began to cheer him on, hoping that he would also speak of his reversing tax payers' funding to abortion providers outside of America as well as the appointments of Dr. Ben Carson to HUD and a pro-life Supreme Court Justice."
King reminds us that we must not put our ultimate hope in President Trump, but in Jesus Christ alone.
"Realizing that I was slipping toward emotional reactions, I came to my senses, turned off the television and began to pray: "The first thing I want you to do is pray. Pray every way you know how, for everyone you know. Pray especially for rulers and their governments to rule well so we can be quietly about our business of living simply, in humble contemplation. This is the way our Savior God wants us to live" (1 Tim. 2:1-3, MSG)."
King talks about feeling heavy with spiritual attack and darkness, as she was slammed in the media for being an advocate of the president. "The next morning, Friday, soon after turning away from the TV screen, I joined a conference call where a report of a "Trump Resistance Movement" was discussed," she writes.
"We wondered if the "Resistance" really understands that their movement is fueled and funded by those who support abortion, anarchy and the like? Do they seriously want to resist restoring jobs from overseas, restoration of our inner cities, putting Americans back to work? Are they seriously resisting ending racism, reproductive genocide, sexual perversion and global terror?"
Now, she believes she has a prophetic prayer for such a time as this.
On that phone conference call, I shared a word from our prayer warriors' camp:
"Praying to circumvent the demonic structures and infrastructures and traps. Guidance by Holy Spirit. Political correctness is serious witchcraft (mind control). Don't ask God to show up. He is waiting for us to show up [to wake up, get up and get busy]. "
