Video: Doug Mastriano Caught Praying for MAGA to ‘Take Power’


An excerpt from a prayer led by Pennsylvania gubernatorial candidate Doug Mastriano is now circulating online.

According to Rolling Stone, the prayer meeting was organized by Jim Garlow, who is described as “a prominent figure in the far-right New Apostolic Restoration (NAR) movement”. The prayer meeting would have aligned with Garlow’s beliefs which focus on the ideology of government operating around biblical principles.

The controversial clip features Mastriano praying for the Make America Great Again (MAGA) movement to ‘seize power’ amid Republican pushback to overturn the 2020 presidential election result in the run-up to lawmakers asserting the vote of the Electoral College.

In the clip, Mastriano can be heard saying, “We remember the promises of old,” he said, before invoking the Book of Revelations and its End Times tale: “We know we overcame Satan by the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony and not loving our lives unto death.”

At one point, Mastriano also spoke about the creation of the United States from a biblical position, saying: “We remember 1776, our declaration of independence, speaking of truth and the word of God on what would become the United States of America.”

Rolling Stone also notes that it “linked Pennsylvania to God’s divine plan, from the Battle of Gettysburg to the fate of Flight 93, which crashed after a ‘strong Christian’ clashed with hijackers Islamists on September 11, with the cry ‘Let’s roll!'”

“God, I ask you to help us through these dark times, that we not fear the darkness, that we seize our Esther and Gideon moments. We are surrounded by wickedness and fear, dithering and inaction,” said he added. , “But that’s not our problem. Our problem is to follow your example.”

In reference to January 6, Mastriano said: “I pray that…we will seize the power that we have given by the Constitution, and also by you, providentially. I also pray for the leaders of the federal government, God, on January 6 that they will rise boldly.”

Other religious leaders have also expressed similar sentiments. Abby Abildness, a well-known NAR pastor based in Pennsylvania, expressed her feelings during one of her own prayers. “We look forward to the victory you proclaimed Lord that there would be another term for Pence and Trump to continue the righteous values ​​for which they opened the door in this nation,” Abildness said.

James Goll, one of the movement’s prophets, also weighed in. “We say the Spirit of God is moving,” Goll intones. “And we’re letting the word out to senators.”

During the call, Goll also attempted to condemn one of the state senators, saying, “I say to Marsha Blackburn, I say, stand up, be a spokesperson, join the Missouri senator ….You are an Esther, and you ‘I am called to arise and be a righteous voice that will also say, ‘I will not allow this under my watch.’”
