Pastor Brunson was on house arrest following his release from prison and was unable to return to the United States. He had been living in Turkey and was working for the small Izmir Resurrection Church when he was arrested over his ties to various political groups following the failed 2016 coup attempt.
President Trump imposed sanctions on two Turkish officials who were involved in Pastor Brunson’s detention.
Thanks to prayers and President Trump taking a tough stance, Pastor Brunson is home safe.
On Saturday Pastor Brunson joined President Trump in the White House.
During introductions President Trump told his audience, “We don’t pay ransom in this country. At least not anymore.”
Pastor Brunson then got on his knees, put his hand on Trump’s shoulder and prayed for the President at the White House.
What a touching moment–God Bless Pastor Brunson and his family.
Pastor Brunson’s prayer:
“Father, God I ask that you pour out your Holy Spirit on President Trump–that you give him supernatural wisdom to accomplish all the plans you have for this country. I ask that you give him wisdom to lead this country to righteousness. I ask that you give him perseverance and endurance and courage to stand to truth. I ask that you protect him from enemies…I ask that you make him a great blessing to this country and fill him with your wisdom and strength and perseverance and we bless him and may he be a blessing to our country, in Jesus name…Amen.”
