Worship singer Kari Jobe in tears after visiting the White House

After several Pastors and worship leaders prayed for President Trump in the oval office, Kari Jobe, who was among them, couldn’t help but share the remarkable experience. It left her in “tears all day” and she was moved to “see what God’s doing in our White House.”

In a short video from the White House’s twitter account, Kari Jobe and her husband revealed their experience on December 6.


A Powerful Moment for Kari Jobe

“The thing that moved me the most is how everyone is so for making sure we’re changing people’s lives. And not leaving those that are marginalized and those that have been trafficked,” Kari explained.

“I think those of us that don’t work in the White House, it can look really big and something that we can’t really end. But they are working to end these things. I’ve just been in tears all day. I’m so thankful to be part of this today and see what God’s doing in our White House,” she added.


God Is Moving

Kari’s husband Cody Carnes, also a worship leader, agreed saying, “I’ve been so encouraged today because there’s so many good things happening out of this house. So many good things for the faith community.”

According to Premier News, the pastors and worship leaders prayed in the Cabinet Room and the Oval Office. They were joined by the President in the Oval Office.


Participants of The Gathering

The White House initiated the gathering to showcase the Trump administration’s faith-based initiatives. Christian leaders were there including Vice President Mike Pence, Pastor Paula White, Hillsong Pastor Brian Houston and Bethel worship leader Sean Feucht.

Vice President Mike Pence proudly shared on twitter, “Wonderful stopping by a worship leaders briefing today at the @WhiteHouse! America is a proud Nation of believers and our Administration will always defend the freedom of religion of every American, of every faith!”

Bethel’s worship leader Sean also wrote on Facebook:

“On the outdoor steps, the hallways and the rooms of the White House today (including the Oval Office), worship, prayer, and blessings flowed from a bunch of songbirds. We came from across the nation, heard incredible testimonies of God moving, and believe we left a deposit of grace, peace, and hope.”

And for Kari Jobe, she believes that the briefing will go beyond the moment.

“God is moving. It’s very encouraging. It’s beautiful,” she concluded at the end of the White House video.
