Several prominent members of President Trump’s cabinet reportedly meet for prayer sessions every week.

Charisma News reports that Christians can be encouraged that many of America’s top government officials are committed to turning to the Lord in prayer for the country.

Vice President Mike Pence is one of the sponsors of the weekly prayer meetings. Eight other cabinet members also sponsor and attend the meetings. These include Education Secretary Betsy DeVos, Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson, Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue, Secretary of Energy Rick Perry, Health and Human Services Secretary Tom Price, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Environment Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt, and CIA Director Mike Pompeo.

Capitol Ministries Founder Ralph Drollinger is also one of the leaders behind the prayer meetings, reports CBN News. Capitol Ministries also hosts weekly Bible studies in the House and Senate.

"In terms of a country's health and direction, when its leaders are seeking God, the nation is in a position to be blessed by God in ways that are 'far more abundantly beyond all that we ask or think,'" stated Drollinger, referencing Ephesians 3:20.

Leaders of the events say President Trump is always welcome to join the prayer meetings and Bible studies.

Many in the Trump administration have been vocal about their faith and President Trump often received prayer during his campaign.
