Gospel singer Micah Stampley was among 50 prominent worship leaders from across America that gathered for a White House faith briefing Friday, organized by Paula White-Cain.

As previously reported by EEW Magazine Online, White-Cain, 53, is President Donald Trump’s spiritual advisor and acting chair of his evangelical advisory board.

As many within the faith community strongly and loudly criticize the president who says he is a Christian, Stampley and others prayed over the commander-in-chief in the Oval Office last week as a contentious and dramatic impeachment probe unfolded on Capitol Hill.

Stampley’s White House trip comes just weeks after his 15-year-old daughter Mary Stampley died of complications from a seizure.

“All 50 of us crammed into the Oval Office. He sat at his desk and he said pray for me,” Sean Feucht, a Bethel Music worship leader, told Fox News of the president’s request for intercessory prayer.

Nashville-based worship leader Kari Jobe and her husband Cody Carnes spoke highly of their experience in an emotional video posted on the White House’s official Facebook page. “We got to listen to a lot of the faith briefing of things that are going on in the White House,” said Jobe, adding, “I’ve just been in tears all day. I’m so thankful to be part of this today and see what God’s doing in our White House.”

“We’ve gotten to worship. We’ve gotten to pray for the President,” Carnes said. “I’ve been so encouraged today, because there’s so many good things happening out of this house—so many good things for the faith community.”

Trump surprised the visitors in the Cabinet Room, which is the meeting room for the cabinet secretaries and advisors serving the president. When he welcomed the group, he cracked a joke about his political rival, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, saying she prays for him daily.

“Nancy Pelosi says that she prays for me, but she doesn’t tell anyone what she prays for,” Trump said. “But I know you guys have come to pray for me, and I know you care about what’s happening in this administration.”

For black faith leaders like Stampley, it is controversial to visit the White House and appear to be an ally of a man a large majority view as racist, xenophobic, and dismissive of marginalized communities.
