The Family Research Council, a conservative Christian lobbying group led by Tony Perkins, exhorted followers this week to pray that God would vanquish the “demonic forces” behind President Donald Trump’s impeachment.
After noting that House Democrats would likely secure an impeachment vote with a simple majority and a trial would commence in the Senate, the daily prayer on FRC’s website said: “May God arise and his enemies be scattered! May he who rules over heaven and earth, preside over this political process. May injustice and unrighteousness be exposed and excised, and may justice and righteousness be done! May our president be strengthened by him who gives strength.”
It continued: “And may the Prince of Peace prevail to bring peace, calm, wisdom, resolution and closure to the civil enmity and sin that is destroying our nation and making all Americans victims. May the demonic forces behind this enmity be crushed and may God’s grace, mercy, and revival be poured out upon our land.”
