It was a welcome surprise for Archbishop Steven to receive this thank you from President Donald Trump. Archbishop Steven had arranged prayers in London ahead of President Trump's election win and members of TICCN have worked directly for the President on his successful election campaign.
President Trump made the following remarks at the White House National Day of Prayer Service on 7th May 2020. Several members of our Faith Network were present:
We're also profoundly grateful to be joined by many faith leaders who are helping to care for our neighbors in their hour of need. Thank you all for providing meals to families, medical supplies to hospitals, and for providing spiritual strength and encouragement to your communities. You're very important people, very respected people, and very much loved people.
In every part of our country, we have seen the Grace of God through the love and devotion of our fellow citizens. As Scripture assures us, "The Lord your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save." And I think it's, I think it’s so true. Think of that: "The Lord your God is in your midst, a mighty one who will save."
We have been reminded once again that God has blessed our land with heroes of faith.
