American pastor Andrew Brunson, recently freed after nearly two years of detention in Turkey, has asked God for “supernatural wisdom” for President Donald Trump.

The pastor was first detained in Turkey in October 2016.

The 50-year-old North Carolina native, who flew out of Turkey on Friday, says he now plans to spend time with his children and pray about the future.
