I Prayed have prayed
Father, protect our nation. Let us find refuge in You. Give the FBI wisdom and guidance. Please heal this crew member who was injured.

The FBI is reportedly investigating an incident involving an Air Force helicopter assigned to President Donald Trump’s support detail that was hit by a bullet while flying over Virginia.

The helicopter is part of the 1st Helicopter Squadron, which “supports the movement of the president and other senior government officials to and from Andrews.”

Early reports seem to suggest that the helicopter was shot by someone from the ground.

The president was not on the helicopter or any other aircraft at the time. (Excerpt from Conservative Brief.)

We need to pray for President Trump’s protection! And the protection of all who surround him.

An Air Force helicopter was forced to make an emergency landing at a Virginia airport Monday after someone shot at it, injuring a member of the crew, local and military officials told McClatchy.

The UH-1N Huey helicopter is assigned to the 1st Helicopter Squadron at Joint Base Andrews and had been on a routine training flight, the base said in a statement. The injured crew member, who was not identified, was treated at a hospital and released. . . .

The FBI “dispatched Special Agents and its Evidence Response Team to the Manassas Airport after receiving reports that a helicopter was shot at from the ground nearby,” the FBI’s Washington Field Office said in a statement.

Officials at Manassas Regional Airport said they received a call at about 12:20 p.m. alerting them that “a military helicopter was inbound and that paramedics were on the way,” said airport operations officer Richard Allabaugh.

A second airport official said the injured Air Force crew member was taken to a local facility for treatment. The helicopter remained at the airport as an investigation was launched into the shooting incident.

“The FBI Washington Field Office is working jointly with our law enforcement partners, including the Air Force Office of Special Investigations, to determine the circumstances surrounding the incident. One individual in the helicopter sustained a non-threatening injury, for which he was treated and subsequently released from the hospital,” the FBI said, asking that “anyone near this area at the time of the incident who may have information please call the FBI at 202-278-2000.” . . .

“The Office of Special Investigations is fully engaged with our FBI colleagues on this incident. OSI take threats to our Airmen and our resources very seriously. As this is an ongoing investigation, no further investigative details can be released at this time,” Joint Base Andrews said.

Multiple UH-1N Iroquois “Huey” aircraft from the 1st Helicopter Squadron sit on the flightline at Joint Base Andrews, Md. One Huey assigned to the squadron was forced to make an emergency landing Monday after someone shot at it from the ground, injuring a member of the crew. The FBI is investigating.  11TH WING PUBLIC AFFAIRS

We need to pray for our military and military families! They are under pressure and at risk in ways we cannot imagine. This shooting should be big news–is it?

Lord, this incident shows that our President is in great danger at all times as well as those who protect him. Keep them all safe with Your angels surrounding them constantly and protecting them from all harm. Help us also to be constantly alert to who and what is happening around us.
Lord I praise You and thank the person shot was not badly injured.
Put Your shield around all of us continually and especially around our President, VP, and all of the Cabinet members and their families. Thank You Lord.

Father God hear our prayers. Let all the plans of evil in the land be exposed. Let all who engage in this evil be exposed. Let the motivations of this evil be exposed. We pray for swift and righteous judgement against this evil and it’s proponents. We are a nation of law and order and principles that are supposed to protect us from lawlessness and anarchy. Continue to give our leader courage, strength and protection to stay the course. Let the people turn from and against these evildoers and their ways and turn towards You. Praying in the name above all names, our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Amen

How could this NOT be in the news? I told my husband and he was even asking me if it is really a reliable source. I told him look at ifapray.org-it is credible!I even got back on here today to check on it because I shared the post and would hate to share anything false. Wow! How could this not be even Breaking News ? This is just getting more and more hard to believe how shady our news has become!

We have a small group who prays weekly for our President, His family and all those in his administration, as well as our Military, First responders, Police, Ambulances, and for this Nation. Most of us also pray daily as individuals.

Lord Jesus you see what evildoers hide. We pray you reveal to the investigators the truth about this attack and it’s origen. Your eyes are on the righteous and you hear their prayers. You turn your face from the wicked. They are unaware of your omnipresence.
We pray the attack against your sovereign rule by the forces of evil will arouse the people called by your Great Name to unite and stand in opposition against this nation and against Israel.

    August 14, 2020

    The very last segment of the prayer is confusing for it says ““ to unite and stand in opposition to this nation and to Israel “.“Surely you don’t really mean this?forgive me if I’m misunderstanding- please clarify

    Mistake. Words left out those who stand in opposition

August 13, 2020

Lord, cover our military and President with the blood of Jesus, send your warring angels around all, reveal the enemy!
Enough is enough bring all to their knees and worship you, open our eyes and may we continue to pray for our
election! You know all and your perfect will be done.

I have been praying for President Trump, VP Pence, and his administration regularly. God bless this President, may God’s shield protect and keep him safe from harm. I hope the individual gets caught and is prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.

As I was in prayer during the night the Holy Spirit impressed me to pray for President Trump’s safety. Vice President Pence was included in my prayers along with their families, their staffs, the teams who work with them both in and outside of the White House. Thank you, Jesus, that you are an impenetrable shield totally surrounding our President, Vice President, their families, and all who work with them. Lord Jesus, you are their shield in whom we have our faith. Amen

August 13, 2020

Our Father in heaven, hallowed be thy name. We pray for your kingdom to come and your will to be done in America as it is being done in heaven. LORD, we plead the precious blood of Jesus over our President and his family, over our Vice President and his family, and over all those in authority over us including the President’s advisors and their families, our military personnel, our secret service, our FBI personnel, the police, homeland security, our border patrol agents, and any others who watch over and protect our land. We ask you to provide them your divine wisdom, counsel, and insight as they serve and protect. We ask you would counfound the enemy and bring confusion into the enemy camp. Expose the enemies’ schemes, send your mighty warring angels to chase them, defeat them and send them to wilderness places or into the pit where they belong. We realize unless you watch over our land, they who watch, watch in vain. So we ask you, our loving heavenly Father to keep watch over the gates of our nation, over the gates of our cities, over all those in authority over us so we will be able to live in peace and in safety. Thank you for hearing our prayers; we are desperate for you. We pray these things in Jesus’ name, amen.

Oh Lord, please confuse the strategy of the demonic realm fueling attacks on President Trump and the people trying to keep him safe. Make one lie prove another wrong until they kill each other and fall to the ground in Jesus name, Amen

God have mercy on us as a nation, as a people who love You and Your righteousness. Our nation is truly under judgment. We, who are called by His name, have failed our children, we have not “kept watch” on the ramparts of our nation. Forgive us Lord, I cry out in repentance for my sin and the sin of my family. I can only ask for mercy because You are mercy. In Jesus Name

Lord God thwart the evil wicked plan of the enemy. Greater are You that is in us than he that is in the world. Protect the entire detail. Thank You Lord for sparing the gentlemen. Lord we need Your protection. This is outright terrorism. When the enemy comes in like a flood the Spirit of the Lord will lift up a standard against him. In Jesus Name we pray this Amen.
