Eddie James, a veteran black worship artist and minister who joined a diverse coalition of artists like Kari Jobe and her husband, Cody Carnes, at the White House Dec. 6 to worship and pray with President Donald Trump, has pushed back at critics of the group, telling them to check your heart if they found the visit problematic.
Anyone who has a problem with us worshiping at the #WhiteHouse and praying for President @realdonaldtrump need to prayerfully check your heart! Everything this nation needs is found in Jesus! The beautiful people in this picture released His presence and it was amazing. There was an open Heaven over the #WhiteHouse. #Republican, #Democrat, or #Independent; if you are a #Christian, you would be moved at what God did on this day. I could NOT have been more proud of the #worship #movement of our nation! I am humbled that I am even in this picture, James wrote in a post on Instagram in which he shared a photo of a group of about 40 people.

The group included Hillsong Churchs Brian Houston as well as black artist Micah Stampley whose daughter recently died.
In a video posted by The White House on Twitter, Jobe and her husband said she was thankful to learn about how the Trump administration was working to help the marginalized and victims of human trafficking during the visit.
Weve just got to be with a part of the group today that just got to be a part of praying in the Cabinet Room and in the Oval Office for President Trump and got to listen to a lot of the faith briefing things that are going on in the White House, religious freedom and things like that, Jobe said with her supportive husband at her side.
The thing that moved me the most is just how everyone is so for making sure were changing peoples lives and not leaving those that are marginalized and those that have been trafficked. Sometimes, I think that for those of us that dont work in the White House it can look really big. Like something that we cant even end, but theyre working to end these things. Change these things. Ive just been in tears all day. Im just so thankful to be part of this today and to see what Gods doing in our White House, she said.
Weve gotten to worship, weve gotten to pray for our president, and I just have been so encouraged today because there have been so many good things happening out of this House for the faith community and the world, Carnes added.
Where is Mrs. Journey in the picture?
TDS is located in the Mind not the Heart and they/Dims/Libs/commies/1 worlders/never Trumpers have all lost theirs.
It’s all about skin color to the left.
Trump is like that movie Monty Python and the Holy Grail — he might as well go around with a wheelbarrow shouting, “Bring out your hypocrites!” Hard to believe the hatred spewing from “friends” of these pastors.
