Johnnie Moore, an evangelical religious freedom advocate and the president of The Congress of Christian Leaders who informally advised the Trump administration, offered congratulations to Biden.

“Congratulations to @POTUS @JoeBiden the 46th President of the United States & to @VP @KamalaHarris,” stated Moore in a post to Twitter soon after the inauguration.

“You can count on my prayers & the prayers of tens-of-millions of Evangelicals whose commitment to pray for our nation & its leaders knows no politics.”

In his tweet, Moore also cited Jeremiah 29:7, which states:

“Also, seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you into exile. Pray to the LORD for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper."

Moore, a commissioner of the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom, also cited 1 Timothy 2:1-2, which states:

“I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people — for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.”
