Washington, Jan.30 (ANI): Barack Obama used a door that was anointed with oil from Jerusalem to enter the stage where he was inaugurated as Americas 44th President.
According to The Times, two ministers Reverend Rob Schenck, president of the Faith and Action ministry, and Patrick Mahoney, president of the Christian Defense Coalition, met Obama just inside the doors on January 7 where they filmed a short prayer service and dabbed oil — from Jerusalem, no less — on the doors in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit.
This was the portal that the new president and his family and other dignitaries used on their way to the outside platform on January 20.
The Reverend Mahoney also revealed that he was a part of a 19-day prayer-and-fasting effort on behalf of Obama.
There were also prayers consecrating Obama as president and hands uplifted in heavenly supplication.
The video is posted on You Tube. (ANI)
