Our First Lady Melania Trump, grabbed everybody’s attention when she honored a blind singer with a standing ovation.
The singer was performing How Great Thou Art, and the crowd went crazy for it. Marlana VanHoose is also diagnosed with multiple other medical conditions.
The first family along with Vice President Mike Pence and his family gathered for the traditional National Prayer Service Sunday that was held at the National Cathedral.
Marlana is a 20-year-old girl who suffers from cerebral palsy. She performed the traditional hymn at the steps of the cathedral. Many have acknowledged her as a successful singer that earned her fame with the rendition of The Star-Spangled Banner at the Republican National Convention. Marlana amazed the world. That’s the least we can say for this brilliant singer.
And Melania just wiped the tears from her eyes.
Marlana finished the hymn, and the First Lady rose to lead the standing ovation. The President followed her with the rest of the congregation.
Everyone praised this action. We bet that even liberals were amazed. It’s just not their thing to admire their opponents.
The hymns were spiced up with a choir that sang patriotic songs like My Country ‘Tis Of Thee and America the Beautiful. The choir of Liberty University performed We’ve Come This Far By Faith.
Protestant, Jewish, Sikh, Mormon, Buddhist, Roman Catholic, Baha’i, Episcopal, Hindu and Native American leaders read prayers. Such an amazing experience!
“Oh Lord God, our heavenly father, whose glory is in all the world. we commend this nation to thy merciful care, that being guarded by thy providence, we may dwell secure in thy peace,” prayed Todd Christopherson, Quorum of the Twelve Apostles Mormon church.
“Grant to President Donald John Trump, president of the United States, and to all in your authority thy grace and favored, give them wisdom and strength to know and to do thy will,” he added.
“Imbue with thy heavenly gifts, fill them with the love and truth of righteousness, and make them every mindful of their calling to serve this people, in thy fear through Jesus Christ our lord who lives and reigns with thee, one god, world without end,” Christopherson noted.
Bishop Harry Jackson of Hope Christian Church in Beltsville, Md., had a specific prayer for Trump. He hoped that God gives him “wisdom and grace in the exercise of their duties.”
Of course, Trump and Pence have to “serve all people of this nation and promote the dignity and freedom of every person.”
