President Donald Trump made an unannounced stop Sunday at McLean Bible Church in Virginia, taking a few moments to pray with congregants for the victims of the shooting that took place in Virginia Beach Friday.

The president, who made the surprise visit after a round of golf, arrived in khakis and a blazer with no tie. He was sporting a USA ball cap, which he removed as he walked into the church.

Pastor David Platt also took a moment to say a prayer for the president, asking God to “give him wisdom and help him lead our country alongside other leaders.” (RELATED: Pelosi Says She Will Pray For Trump After Surprise Presser Attacks Democrats)
