“Lord, we thank you for this time where we’re able to gather together in unity, as a community, to demand change,” one of the protesters prayed.

“Holy Spirit, come and bring truth, come and bring life, come and bring love, come, and bring unity.”

Another unprecedented moment came from President Donald Trump, who walked out of the White House and across the street to visit the historic St. John's Church that was recently attacked and set ablaze by rioters.

The president stood in front of the 200-year-old building and held up a bible, telling members of the press, “We have a great country, the greatest country in the world.”

The move came just minutes after President Trump gave a speech in the Rose Garden about George Floyd’s death and the resulting riots taking place across the country.
