Trump Speaks at National Prayer Breakfast LIVESTREAM

President Donald Trump speaks during the National Prayer Breakfast Thursday Feb. 2 2017 in Washington

"America is a nation of believers", Trump said.

Rep. Steve Scalise, the Louisiana congressman who was shot previous year during a Republican baseball practice, served as the keynote speaker for the breakfast - replacing Vice President Mike Pence, who is in Pyeongchang, South Korea, for the Olympics opening ceremony.

"That is why the words "Praise be to God" are etched atop the Washington Monument", Trump said, "and those same words are etched into the hearts of our people".

His appearance came as the White House continues to face criticism over the handling of abuse allegations against Trump's Staff Secretary Rob Porter. "And we see the Lord's grace in the Moms and Dads who work two and three jobs to give their children the chance for a better and much more prosperous and happier life".

In his 2010 remarks, President Obama called on "Americans of every faith, and no faith", to unite "around a common objective, a higher goal", specifically mentioning Hindus and Sikhs, as well as Jews, Catholics and Protestants.

"We all want a government that celebrates all Americans", Fish said.

As Sophia prepared for surgery January 24 to continue treatment for the disease that caused the strokes, she sought prayers from people.

"As long as we open our eyes to God's grace and open our hearts to God's love, then America will forever be land of the free, the home of the courageous and the light unto all nations", he said.

And although Trump rarely attends church himself, the emphasis on the role of God in his vision of America is something with which a growing number of citizens disagree. "Then one of our members shares their stories and we pray", explained Hultgren as part of opening remarks.

"Our rights are not given to us by man, our rights come from our creator", Trump said to the estimated 3,000 attendees at this year's prayer breakfast. Let us pray for that extra measure of strength and that extra measure of devotion.

"As long as we are true to America's founders ... we can all be heroes to everybody and they can be heroes to us", he said.

In recent years, many evangelical leaders have shifted away from talk of a coalescing into a "moral majority" or taking back a Christian nation into a resigned acknowledgment of the loss of battles like same-sex marriage, according to Seth Dowland, an associate professor of religion at Pacific Lutheran University. They have shown unshakable support for him, even after reports that one of his associates paid hush money to a porn star with whom Trump had an affair before he became president.
