A nondenominational group of liberal believers who call themselves the Red Letter Christians — because they are committed to “doing what Jesus said” printed in red font in many Bibles — will hold a national day of prayer Sunday in support of the impeachment inquiry of President Donald Trump and are calling on other believers to join them.
“As we issue this statement together, we commit to pray for our members of Congress and the impeachment inquiry while they are home in their districts this coming Sunday, October 13th. We encourage faith communities to invite their Congressional representative to join them for a National Day of Prayer, read the statement aloud, and pray for those who bear the responsibility of shining the light of truth in this moment,” the group said in a statement Tuesday.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., announced a formal impeachment inquiry into claims that President Donald Trump asked Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky on a telephone call in July to investigate Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden for what she described as “personal gain.” A transcript of that call can be read here.
The inquiry has reportedly led to anger among some of the president’s most ardent evangelical supporters. First Baptist Church of Dallas Senior Pastor Robert Jeffress said an impeachment would cause a “Civil War-like fracture.”
The Red Letter Christians explained that they decided to pray for members of Congress after a gathering on Oct. 1-2, in Goldsboro, North Carolina, for a Red Letter Revival to lift up Jesus and justice.
