Things are certainly not looking good for Donald Trump in the U.S. presidential election. The president is facing stiff competition from Democrat Joe Biden, who at the time of writing this story, was in the lead.
And as the official results of the presidential election are not yet in, the president’s spiritual adviser, Paula White, who is hopeful of turning things around in Trump’s favor, has led a marathon prayer service calling on ‘angels’ to help him reach victory.
In the video of the service at the New Christian Destiny Centre, White can be heard saying, “I hear a sound of victory. The Lord says it is done. For I hear, victory, victory, victory!” She continues: “Angels are being dispatched right now.”

“Angels have been dispatched from Africa right now. They’re coming here, in the name of Jesus.”
“We break every demonic altar that has been erected over the White House, specifically Donald J Trump,” she says in the two-and-a-half long prayer meeting streamed on Facebook Live.
The clip has been viewed about 11 million times, with many, particularly Africans, laughing it off.
White first prayed with Trump when he was the host of reality TV show The Apprentice. In 2016, she would lead the United States in prayer when Trump was sworn into the White House.
In four years, Biden has said he is on course to win the election being just six Electoral College votes shy of the 270 he needs to clinch victory while Trump has threatened to fight the outcome.
Trump early Wednesday claimed he had won the election, saying he was going to the Supreme Court to demand that all vote-counting stop while calling the election a “fraud on the American people.”
“Millions of people voted for us tonight. A very sad group of people is trying to disenfranchise that group of people,” the president said from the East Room of the White House at 2.30 am. “And we won’t stand for it.”
“We were just about to win, in fact, we have already won,” Trump said. “We want the law to be used in a proper manner, so we’ll be going to the US Supreme Court. We want all voting to stop,” the president said, referring to the counting of mail-in ballots.
“We don’t want them finding any ballots at four in the morning and adding them to the list.”
