Pastor Brunson Released

CAL THOMAS COMMENTARY OCTOBER 16, 2018

         THE RELEASE FROM A TURKISH PRISON OF PASTOR ANDREW BRUNSON IS ANOTHER DIPLOMATIC AND POSSIBLY POLITICAL TRIUMPH FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP. BRUNSON HAD BEEN HELD BY THE TURKISH GOVERNMENT ON BOGUS CHARGES.

         HE WAS FLOWN TO WASHINGTON WHERE HE MET WITH THE PRESIDENT AND ASKED TO PRAY FOR HIM. GETTING DOWN ON ONE KNEE BEFORE CAMERAS, BRUNSON ASKED GOD TO “GIVE HIM SUPERNATURAL WISDOM TO ACCOMPLISH ALL THE PLANS YOU HAVE FOR THIS COUNTRY AND FOR HIM. I ASK THAT YOU GIVE HIM WISDOM IN HOW TO LEAD THIS COUNTRY INTO RIGHTEOUSNESS. I ASK THAT YOU GIVE HIM PERSEVERANCE, AND ENDURANCE AND COURAGE TO STAND FOR TRUTH. I ASK THAT YOU PROTECT HIM FROM SLANDER FROM ENEMIES, FROM THOSE WHO WOULD UNDERMINE. I ASK THAT YOU MAKE HIM A GREAT BLESSING TO THIS COUNTRY. FILL HIM WITH YOUR WISDOM AND STRENGTH…IM JESUS’ NAME, AMEN.”

            YOU CAN’T IMPROVE ON THAT. THE REST OF US SHOULD BE PRAYING THIS WAY FOR THE PRESIDENT AS WELL. I’M CAL THOMAS
