Trump Reiterates All Children Are Made in Image of God at National Prayer Breakfast

by | Feb 7, 2019 | Politics

President Donald Trump addressed the National Prayer Breakfast this morning at the Hilton Hotel in Washington, reaffirming his pro-life policies.

“All children, born and unborn, are made in the holy image of God,” Trump said, reiterating a line he told the nation during the State of the Union Address on Tuesday.

“Since the founding of our nation, many of our greatest strides, from gaining our independence to abolition of civil rights, to extending the vote for women, have been led by people of faith and started in prayer,” Trump said.

Watch the video to see his full remarks.

The Presidential Prayer Breakfast, now the National Prayer Breakfast, began under Dwight D. Eisenhower more than 65 years ago. Since 1953, Congress and evangelical Christians have gathered on the first Thursday in February to discuss the role of faith in public life.

According to USA Today, the event also offers a rare opportunity for presidents to pray, ask for prayers and talk in personal terms about the role of prayer in their own lives.

At last year’s prayer breakfast, Trump told the crowd:

So today we praise God for how truly blessed we are to be American. Across our land, we see the splendor of God’s creation. Throughout our history, we see the story of God’s providence. And in every city and town, we see the Lord’s grace all around us, through a million acts of kindness, courage and generosity. We love God. We see the Lord’s grace in the servicemembers who risk their lives for our freedom. We see it in the teachers who work tirelessly for their students and the police who sacrifice for our communities, and sacrifice they do. And we see the Lord’s grace in the moms and dads who work two and three jobs to give their children the chance for a better and much more prosperous and happier life.

As the Bible tells us, for we are God’s handiwork, created in Jesus Christ to do good works. America’s heroes rise to this calling. In their selfless deeds, they reveal the beauty and goodness of the human soul.
