Evangelical pastors laid hands and prayed for Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump to ward off a "concentrated satanic attack" against the candidate at a conference held in Cleveland, Ohio, this week.
Rev. Darrell Scott, pastor of New Spirit Revival Center, claimed before the prayer that a prominent preacher warned Trump before he declared his candidacy "that if you choose to run for president, there's going to be a concentrated Satanic attack against you."
"He said there's going to be a demon, principalities and powers, that are going to war against you on a level that you've never seen before and I'm watching it every day," added Scott, who is also the CEO of National Diversity Coalition for Trump.
The conference, which was held at Scott's church in Cleveland, was attended by Trump and his vice presidential running mate Mike Pence, along with Ben Carson, Michael Cohen and Omarosa Manigault.
The event was co-hosted by Frank Amedia of Touch Heaven Ministries. Former boxing promoter Don King was also present at the event.
The pastor's wife, Belinda Scott, expressed her appreciation for Trump before she led the audience in prayer. She began her prayer thanking Jesus for "raising up" Trump and asked God to anoint the candidate.
"We ask for help and we ask you God to let that help be in the form of the next president Mr. Donald J. Trump. We ask you God to bless him, keep him safe, give him the wisdom and the strength to lead this nation, in Jesus name," she prayed.
After the prayer, Amedia asked the audience to do a "Jericho shout." Amedia was referring to the biblical verse Joshua 6:20, when Joshua's army was able to tear down the walls of Jericho with a loud shout. Amedia stated that he wanted to tear down the walls of division in the country as well as the walls of opposition to Trump.
Last week, Scott declared in a series of tweets that many black Apostolics would not vote for Hillary because of her gender. In an interview with CNN, he clarified that this group does not believe that women should take on leadership roles.
