Mr. President, in the Bible, rain is a sign of God’s blessing and it started to rain, Mr. President, when you came to the platform. And its my prayer that God will bless you, your family, your administration, and may He bless America.

The passage of Scripture comes from 1st Timothy, Chapter 2 [1st Timothy 2:1-6a, 1:17]: “I urge then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercessions and thanksgiving be made for all people, for kings, for all those in authority, that we may live peacefully, quiet lives, in all godliess and holiness. This is good and it pleases God our saviour, who wants all people to be saved and come to a knowledge of the truth, for there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself as a ransom for all peoples.

Now to the King eternal, immortal, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory forever and ever, in Jesus name, Amen".
