Alveda King Represents Priests for Life at National Prayer Service with President Trump

Priests for Life

January 23, 2017
   
 

 

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Evangelist Alveda King, director of Civil Rights for the Unborn for Priests for Life, was among 26 religious leaders who prayed for President Donald Trump Saturday at Washington National Cathedral.

The National Prayer Service is a tradition that dates back to the inauguration of George Washington as the first president of the United States of America. The tradition was revived in 1933 and has taken place every four years since. 
 
Ms. King, a niece of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, said she prayed that “Our faith and gratitude remain in God, working through you President Trump to lead, embrace and bless all Americans as brothers and sisters. 
 
“Today our prayer is that God will use President Trump and all who labor with him for God's glory. We are also encouraged by the grace and respect with which he has begun his term."
 
Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, said, "I am proud of our new president, and am rejoicing in his victory and his inauguration. There is indeed great reason for all who value life and love America to rejoice at this time. No need to wait to see what he will do, because he has already done an incalculable good for America by keeping Hillary Clinton from being elected. And we look forward to much more good as well!"
 
 
Priests for Life is the nation's largest Catholic pro-life organization dedicated to ending abortion and euthanasia. For more information, visit www.priestsforlife.org.

What a beautiful, triumphant, and historical picture of Dr. Alveda King, niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. shaking hands with President Donald J. Trump on Saturday, January 21, 2017, just a day after President Trump's Inauguration, at the National Prayer Service in Washington DC.
