Trump Writes Prayer for Western Wall

Hand-written prayer brought by staff to Jerusalem to be placed at Judaism’s holiest site

By |

US presidential candidate Donald Trump wrote a prayer asking God to bless America and had it hand-delivered to the Western Wall in Jerusalem.

Trump staff members who carried the prayer to the Israeli capital told Yediot Ahronot that the Republican nominee wrote it following a recent discussion with his daughter, Ivanka, who is a convert to Judaism.

The prayer reads:

“Lord. May you bless the United States, our armed forces and our allies. May your guiding hand protect and strengthen our great nation.”

Thousands of prayers scribbled on scraps of paper are shoved into the crevices of the Western Wall every day. Israel takes these prayers very seriously, and periodically removes them from the Wall to be buried on the Mount of Olives, where both Jews and Christians agree Messiah will one day soon make his appearance.
