NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) – While some protested Wednesday, others celebrated Donald Trump’s victory. Most Tennesseans voted for him.

On Wednesday night, various churches prayed for the President-elect, including Cornerstone in Madison.

Pastor Maury Davis and his congregation prayed to help Trump over the next four years.

The pastor hoped Trump will make Christian-guided decisions, including ending federal funds for Planned Parenthood. He prayed our borders are protected and for religious freedom.

“Our country’s in trouble, but there’s a light at the end of the tunnel,” the Pastor said before his sermon.

“The hope is that God will overshadow our government and gives us a Godly government that gets back to its constitutional rights and lets the rest of us pursue life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness,” he continued.

However, Pastor Davis said Trump isn’t the solution to all our nation’s problems.

“For those of you think this was a horrible decision: chill out. God’s still God,” he said. “For those of you who think we’ve got the answer: you need to chill out. Donald Trump is not God’s answer. Our faith is in God.”

Church members told News 2 they agreed with the pastor’s message and that right now, the focus should be unity.
