A bizarre prayer by President Trump’s Spiritual Advisor Paula White from an online prayer service last night is going viral on social media and also is being reported by major news outlets like USA Today and Newsweek.
During the prayer, White declares “victory” and calls on angels to “break up every demonic confederacy against the election, against America, against who you have declared to be in the White House.”
White also says: “I hear a sound of abundance of rain. I hear a sound of victory. I hear a sound of shouting and singing. I hear a sound of victory. I hear a sound of an abundance of rain. I hear a sound of victory. I hear a sound of an abundance of rain. I hear a sound of victory.”
White then repeats “the Lord said it is done” three times, and proclaims: “For I hear victory, victory, victory, victory in the corners of heaven, in the corners of heaven.”
The popular preacher then repeats the word “victory” seven times and appears to speak in tongues. She adds that angels and “angelic reinforcement” are coming to America from Africa and South America.
Evangelical author and speaker, Trillia Newbell, tweeted that though she wants “to have fun” with the Paula White video, “I can’t help but remember what I thought about ‘Christians’ before Jesus captured my heart . . . She’s deceiving so many and it kills me. I’m praying for God to protect her congregation and reveal Truth.”
I want so badly to have fun with the Paula White video. But I can't help but remember what I thought about "Christians" before Jesus captured my heart. I was 22. She's deceiving so many and it kills me. I'm praying for God to protect her congregation and reveal Truth.

Lindi Li, a Princeton alumna who was a four-time student government president, tweeted White’s video and stated: “Trump spiritual adviser Paula White leads a prayer service to secure his reelection Or why I left institutionalized religion.”

In addition to being Trump’s spiritual advisor, White also is one of the leaders of Trump’s Evangelical Advisory Board. When White’s latest book published earlier this year, it was endorsed by high-profile evangelicals, including Franklin Graham, Greg Laurie, Jack Graham, Robert Jeffress, and Johnnie Moore.
The thrice-married prosperity preacher was investigated by a U.S. Senate Committee for financial improprieties in 2011. White refused to comply with the investigation. But the committee declined to issue subpoenas and White escaped penalty.
